Patriots Hopeful, Upon Arrival Here 

"E" will be the first letter in the 
New England Patriots' alphabet in 
1971. It will stand for enthusiasm-a 
necessary quality in John Mazur's 
plans for the Patriots in his first 
full year as the team's head coach. 
"Enthusiasm will be the big 
thing for our ball club this 
year. ..we'll look for it in 
everything we do. With it we can 
get the kind of mental attitude 
we're going to need to hold our 
own. ..the kind of mental attitude 
too many of the men didn't have a 
year ago." 

These are Mazur's thoughts as 
he looks ahead to the 1971 season. 
He and his newly realigned 
coaching staff will have the job of 
leading the Patriots out of the 
depths of the NFL cellar, back 
from the poorest record (2-12) in 
the club's history. The team's 
chances for improvement are not 
helped by having to face one of the 
league's toughest schedules. 
During the slate's first half, six of 
the seven opponents were in last 
year's championship playoffs. 

Despite the tremendous un- 
derdog role the New Englanders 
will play this year, the team and 
the organization have never had so 
much going for them. Among the 
most significant things Mazur and 
new General Manager Upton Bell 
now refer to are: 

(1) the new Schaefer 
Stadium in Foxboro-the 
team's first permanent 
home evei"... 

(2) an almost unbelieveable 
explosion of fan en- 
thusiasm-a whooping 500 
percent increase in season 
tickets approaching some 
50,000 and indicating record 
sellout crowds... 

(3) the prospects of the first 
training camp in two years 
for recent stars Joe Kapp, 
Jim Nance and ' Carl 

(4) the arrival on the scene 
of highly touted number one 
draft choice Jim Plunkett, 
super prospect quarterback 
from Stanford, and other 
hopefuls from the draft and 
the club's large free agent 

(5) the likelihood of large, 
tough, better than average 
front lines on both offense 
and defense... 

(6) the qualitative ex- 
pansion of the organization, 
the club's front office and 
the nucleus for future 
success, the club's scouting 

(7) the fact that the Patriots 
have first claim on all 
players put on waivers in 
the American Conference of 
the NFL... 

"Our position on waivers is a big 
plus for our particular goals," 
Mazur stated, "because we have a 
chance to add some bench strength 
from talent-rich clubs if we can't 
find it among the people we have in 
training camp. As far as our first 
line starters are concerned, most 
are top-notch men at their 
positions, as good as any," he 
pointed out, "and in some cases, 
better than most. Many people in 
the league would agree with me on 
this, but when you lose, your talent 
can be dragged down by the overall 
stigma of frequent defeat. This is 
why," the Pats' mentor concluded, 
"our mental attitude is so im- 
portant going in." 
Perhaps the biggest factor in- 

fluencing mental attitude, the 
biggest shot m the arm any last 
place ball club could get to help in 
getting a few wins, is the presence 
of a new stadium and the promise 
of crowds at least twice as large as 
the Patriots are used to at home. 
Before now the Patriots had never 
had a real home. There's no way to 
be sure how much this will help the 
spirit of the team-but there is a 
good chance it will aid them more 
than anyone now expects. 

Team defensive captain Houston 
Antwine summed it up best at a 
recent gathering of many of the 
Patriot players at a Cape Cod 
resort area: "All of the players 
I've talked to can feel it. ..the 
support, the interest, and the 
feeling that we can do it if we do it 
together," he said. "We know we 
have some darn good personnel 
and we know that some strange 
things hit us a year ago," Twine 
added, "but I think we're going to 
be ready to beat some people." 

John Mazur and his staff have 
worked long hours putting the 
system together. Sam Rutigliano is 
the new offensive coordinator, 
joined by offensive aides Bruce 
Beatty and Jerry Stoltz. Dick 
Evans is the new defensive 
coordinator, joined by defensive 
aides John Meyer and Tom Flet- 
cher. Now that preparations for 
training camp are close to ready, 
Mazur looks at the prospects of his 

good to have what looks like some 
depth for a change," said Mazur, 
himself a former collegiate and pro 
quarterback. The big veteran 
returning is Joe Kapp, the Pats' on- 
the-field leader who is the in- 
cumbent starter. The big new face 

is rookie Jim Plunkett, the sen- 
sational Stanford .^ll-American 
who was the Pats' and pro foot- 
ball's top draft choice in 1971. 
'Everyone asks me to compare 
Kapp and Plunkett as if to pit one 
against the other," he added, "but 
heck, 1 like to compare them as to 
what they can do for each other 
and both can do for the ball club. 
Joe will have his first training 
camp ever with us and he just 
wants to win," he continued, "and 
Jim has the great potential and a 
pretty darn good quarterback to 
learn from. It's not a bad 

Another experienced hand is 
Mike Taliaferro, the Patriots' 
starting quarterback throughout 
the 1969 season and a starter for 
the East in that year's AFL All- 
Star Game. Last year Taliaferro 
was replaced by Kapp in early 
October after a shoulder injury led 
to an unsteady start. Former Yale 
star Brian Dowling and three year 
pro Kim Hammond, the man who 
threw to Ron Sellers at Florida 
State, return from last year's 
team. A promising newcomer in 
addition to Plunket is 6'3", 220 
pound rookie Mike Blake, a New 
Hampshire native from Baldwin 
Wallace who took a year out 
following college to play 
professional baseball. 

Even with six quarterbacks 
coming to camp, the big play 
seems to be in the hands of either 
Kapp or Plunkett. The 33 year old 
Kapp has taken his team from the 
bottom to the top in both college 
and the pros. Plunkett also did it a*. 
Stanford last year. Now one of 
them seems the heir apparent to 
the job of taking the Patriots in 
that direction in the years ahead. 

got a good combination if they're 
ready," Mazur summed up suc- 
cinctly. Jim Nance is the second 
leading all-time rusher in the 
NFL's American Conference. Carl 
Garrett was such a sensation two 
years ago he was named the AFL's 
Rookie of the Year. Nance and 
Garrett. Garrett and Nance. 
Either way they racked up more 
yardage than any pair of running 
backs in the league in 1969. 

Last year neither Nance or 
Garrett were with the Pats in 
training camp. Nance signed his 
contract late and Garrett was 
away on Army duty. Both slumped 
in 1970 as the team's offense took a 
nosedive for most of the season. 

"Both of them should get it back 
with this training camp," said 
Mazur, "and both have proven 
what they can do when they're on. 
With Jim it's mostly power 
although if he plays at the right 
weight, he has fine quickness too. 
Car! is the explosive type," Mazur 
continued, "but he can also 
overpower a lot of defensive 
people. With the right situation on 
injuries, conditioning and attitude, 
it could be a beautiful com- 

Garrett is backed up by last 
year's top rookie, Odell Lawson, 
and versatile former Notre Dame 
Bob Gladicux. Nance has big Eddie 
Ray, the second year former 
L.S.U. power back, behind him. 
"Odell can play at either running 
back spot and last year showed us 
something," Mazur added, "while 
Harpo (Gladieux) has that great 
heart. Ray is reporting in better 
shape and at a much better weight 
than a year ago."

University and Local News Roundup 

Dr. Robert L. Woodbury has 
been named associate provost at 
the University. The an- 
nouncement was made by Dr. 
Robert L. Gluckstern, vice 
chancellor for academic affairs. 
Dr. Woodbury has been 
associate professor and associate 
dean of the UMass-Amherst 
School of Education. Beginning in 
August he will be associate 
provost in charge of special 
programs such as the University 
Honors Program, the Bachelor's 
Degree with Individual Con- 
centration, international 
programs, and resident college 
academics. His special areas of 
concern will be undergraduate 
level interdisciplinary and other 
programs which involve several 
schools on colleges and teaching 
evaluation and improvement. 

In 1960 he earned his bachelor's 
degree in American studies from 
Amherst College and from 1960 to 
1964 did graduate work in that 
field. He has a master's and a 
doctorate from Yale University. 
His publications include "Why 
Teach Black History," which he 
co-authored; and articles, 
"Wilbur Cross: New Deal Am- 
bassador to a Yankee Culture," 
and "What's So Crazy about 
California Politics?" 

At the School of Education he 
has helped plan several 
programs, including the annual 
multi-media fairs which offer a 
smorgasbord of happenings, 
talks, demonstrations, and other 
events for persons interested in 

Assoc. Provost Woodbury is 
married and the father of three 
children. The Woodburys live on 
January Hill Rd., Shutesbury. 

Several dozen women from the 
Pioneer Valley are expected to 
join large numbers of women 
from all over the country at the 
Women's National Abortion 

Conference in New York City the 
weekend of July 16, 17, 18. 

This conference has been 
called because women active in 
campaigns against abortion laws 
became convinced that nation- 
wide coordination is necessary to 
make visible and powerful the 
protests against abortion laws 
that are now taking place in 
every state. Anti-abortion forces 
in this country have opened a 
campaign to deny women one of 
their most basic rights-control 
over their own bodies. This trend 
has been made clear by the 
tremendous energy and funds the 
Catholic hierarchy has poured 
into anti-abortion groups; 
Nixon's hypocritical attack on 
abortion as a violation of his 
belief in the "sanctity of human 
life"; and the practice of a 
proposed increase in involuntary 
sterilization, particularly of 
welfare mothers. 

The call to the conference 
states: "We believe that the most 
democratic way we could launch 
a national campaign for the 
repeal of all abortion laws would 
be to move quickly to hold a 
national women's conference on 
abortion. We want to gather the 
frowing numbers of women who

C.?.v°^.l",8Latir.a, Asian, Puerto 
Rican and Native American 
women, campus women, gay 
women, high school students, 
housewives, professional, 
welfare, and working women, 
young women and older women, 
women from churches, political 
organizations, trade unions, the 
military and communities across 
the country-and together decide 
on a course of action that can best 
win the repeal of all abortion laws 
with no forced sterilization. We 
will also be concerned with the 
repeal of restrictive con- 
traception laws that exist in 30 

This national conference, open 
to all women, will present the 
opportunity to share information 
and express proposals for action- 
women from New Haven, for 
example, have already suggested 
holding a massive demonstration 
in Washington demanding that 
the Supreme Court recognize 
the rights of women and declare 
all existing abortion legislation 

The conference has so far 
received an overwhelmingly 
favorable response from in- 
dividual women and women's 
groups. Some of the hundreds of 
initial endorsers of the con- 
ference include Mary Daly, 
Assistant Professor of Theology 
at Boston College; Ruth Gage- 
Colby of the WILPF; Faye 
Dunaway, Kate Millett, and 
Gloria Steinem; and women from 
such diverse groups as Planned 
Parenthood, United Farm- 
workers Organizing Committee, 
YWCA, Spanish-American 
Feminists, Women in the Arts, 
Black and Third World Women's 
Alliance, the American Medical 
Women's Association, the 
Communist Party and Socialist 
Workers' Party, and feminist 
groups all across the country, 
including the Pioneer Valley. 

The dates July 16. 17, 18 have 
special significance, since it is 
the anniversary of the 1848 
Seneca Falls Convention, where 
women of the last century met 
and organized the first women's 

rights movement. 


Prof. George Wardlaw has 
been named chairman of the art 
department at the University, it 
has been announced by Dr. 
Robert L. Gluckstern, vice 
chancellor for academic affairs. 

Prof. Wardlaw, who has been 
at UMass since 1968, has studied 
at Memphis Academy of Arts, the 
University of Tennessee, 

Memphis State University, and 
the University of Mississippi. He 
has bachelor's and master's 
degrees in fine arts. 

He has taught at the Memphis 
Academy of Arts, the University 
of Mississippi, Louisiana State 
University, the State University 
of New York, and Yale where he 
was associate chairman of the 
painting division of the School of 

Prof. Wardlaw has exhibited 
his work in silversmithing and 
jewelry, his paintings, and his 
drawings in a number of one-man 
shows. Some of his works are in 
the collections of the Art Lending 
Service of the Museum of Modern 
Art, Memphis Academy of Arts, 
and the University of Mississippi. 

Among honors given the art 
professor was an Award for 
Original Craft, given him in 1954 
by the Dclgade Museum of New 
Orleans; and three Court of 
Honor Awards from the New 

York State Craft Fair in 1968. 


The months-old Friends of the 
Library at the University has 
received a check for $25,000, the 
largest single contribution the 
group has received for improving 
the library collection on the 
Amherst campus. 

The $25,000 check from The 
Charles E. Merrill Trust will be 
used to provide materials to 
strengthen the business and 
economics collections. Materials 
to be added include reports and 
other publications of cor- 
porations, government agencies, 
and associations; and backfiles, 
primarily in microfilms, of major 
journals and commercial 
newspapers. Areas of focus will 
include the history and 
development of major U.S. 
corporations and finance, 
economic planning and 
development, and industrial and 
labor relations. 

Charles E. Merrill, for whom 
the Trust is named, is the late 
founder of the brokerage firm of 
Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner, 
and Smith, Incorporated. He died 
in 1956 and his will set up the 
Trust to give funds to various 
institutions, including colleges 
and other areas of education. 

The personal library of the late 
Howard M. Lebow has been given 
to the University of 
Massachusetts through the 
generosity of his mother, Mrs. 
Carlton Lebow of West New 
York, N.J. 

Mr. Lebow was an assistant 
professor of music at UMass in 
Amherst when his outstanding 
career as a concert pianist was 
endnd by a fatal automobile 
accident in January of 1968. 

The collection, numbering over 
5000 items, is primarily of 
keyboard music and includes 
many unusual early editions, a 
reflection of Mr. Lebow's taste 
and discrimination as a musician 
and enthusiastic collector. The 
collection is temporarily stored 
in Goodell Library, but will be 
established as the Howard Lebow 
Memorial Collection in the new 
Fine and Performing Arts 
Center, currently under con- 
struction at the University. 

Known for his interpretations 
of recent contemporary music, 
Mr. Lebow was equally at home 
in the entire piano literature, and 
one of his last and most 
memorable recitals was devoted 
to the music of Franz Liszt. He 
had been a student at the 
Juilliard School, where he was a 
pupil of the late Edward 
Steuermann. and had appeared 
widely in concerts and recitals in 
the United States and Europe.

New Post 

Very soon someone will have to 
be named to supervise the entire 
Campus Center and Student Union 
operatiqn, The new administrative 
reorganization plan of UMass- 
Amherst calls for such a position 
and one can only hope those people 
who make the decision will choose 
someone with sufficient experience 
to effectively deal with, and 
ultimately serve students. 

It is. no secret around here that 
there, has been more than a little 
disenchantment with the facilities 
of Campus Center and the all too 

often cavalier attitude which 
management seems to have 
toward students. This attitude not 
only pervades segments of the 
services aspect of the facilities, but 
also certain powerful people in 
Whitmore who at one point at- 
tempted to move the Treasurer's 
office into student space. Despite 
the importance of the buildings as 
a conference facility, their chief 
purpose is to serve students and 
hopefully the man who will be 
appointed soon understands this 
fact, and understands students.

I heard there was going to be a 
war down at the campus pond this 
weekend between the Jesus Freaks 
and the Maharishi's guys. When I 
went down there and saw 5 million 
guys with cameras from the 
camera club, I knew something 
was up. I wondered which side the 
Hari-Krishna movement would be 
on. It would be colorful, but there 
was no war, only these camera 
nuts taking pictures of the orange 
carp blundering around through 
the mud of the pond. 

I don't think there will be a war 
next weekend either. There's no 
time for a war in this world caught 
up in class struggles between the 
'haves' and the 'have nots'...I 
mean the world is too caught up in 
material struggles to settle down 
for a good religious war, like 
another Crusades would get all this 
Viet Nam stuff out of the paper- 
s..this stuff about Communism vs. 
Capitalism and dictatorships of the 
Proletariat. Marx said religion is 
the opiate of the people, but the 
people need a change of pace, 
because if religion is like dope (the

For purposes of additional 
depth in the ground forces, at 
least eight free agents will get a 
look. These will include a highly 
regarded draftee of two years 
ago, Roland Moss of Toledo, and 
a promising small college power 
runner, Steve Pelot of South 

couple of consistent performers, 
one at split end and one at tight 
end, would fill two of our biggest 
areas of need," said the Pats' 
head coach, "and they could 
either come from our current 
roster or we could pick someone 

If lanky Ron Sellers can stay 
healthy like he did all through his 
collegiate All-American career, 
he should be the Patriots' star- 
ling flanker. A master at spec- 
tacular catches and a starting 
All-star in his first pro year. 
Sellers could raise All-Pro havoc 
in an effective offense. 

They key word for the com- 
petition at split end is quantity. 
There are veterans like Bake 
Turner, Bill Rademacher and 
Charlie Frazier. Tommy 
Richardson and Gayle Knief also 
return. Neither of the latter has 
seen much duty, Richardson 
having been lost a year ago on a 
waiver technicality and Knief 
having been acquired from the 
Vikings as a mid-season free 
agent. "We like what we saw of 
Knief last year," Mazur said, 
"and Tommy (Richardson) has 
that good height, speed and 
hands. We've good experience in 
our three bets too so the best I can 
say now is that it's wide open." 

"irhe tight end position is thin 
prior to training camp. Tom Beer 
has moved to guard. Barry 
Brown is the only returning 
veteran. "Three of our draft 
choices, Dan Schneiss, Dave 
Hardt and Nick McGarry, and a 
free agent, Dick Hill, will com- 
pete with Barry for a starting 
job," said Mazur, "and we also 
might make further moves 
here." Schneiss and Hardt both 
played in the recent Coaches All- 
America Game. McGarry and 
Hill are both over 6'4". 

The four rookies at tight end 
join at least ten new faces at wide 
receiver. Among them are 
Boston College's John Bonistalli, 
Maceo Coleman, Eric Stolberg 
and Gary Orcutt. They passed 
free agent tests at an early rookie 
camp. Al Sykes is a very fast 
draft choice. Bob Reed is a once 
very fast Minnesota Viking who 
has been away from NFL football 
for seven years but will try a 
comeback. A sleeper is former 
Dallas Cowboy taxi squadder Bob 
Odom, a late acquisition this 

five men can do the job," Mazur 
predicted, "but we have to add to 
our depth. This need was proved 
last year when several of our 
starters were lost with injuries. 
The unit just didn't hold up when 
changes were made to fill in." 

The first five men are All-Star 
center Jon Morris, guards Len St. 
Jean and Mike Montler and 
tacklt's Tom Neville and Tom 

first time, battled Oakland and 
New York for their league 
leadership in pass protection. 
They also opened enough holes so 
that Jim Nance and Carl Garrett 
ended the season as the leading 
rushing tandem in the AFL. Last 
year injuries claimed Montler, 
Neville and Funchess. Perennial 
All-star center Morris practiced 
at guard. As embattled quar- 
terback Joe Kapp described the 
scene, "it was like the Grand 
Canyon opening up." 

One major change is planned 
among the now healthy in- 
cumbents. Guard Mike Montler, 
a 6'5", 270 pounder who was an 
All-American tackle at Colorado, 
and tackle Tom Funchess, a 6'6", 
268 pounder who because of his 
speed was originally drafted by 
the Fats as a guard, are slated to 
switch positions-Montler back to 
tackle and Funchess inside to 
guard. The good sized pair, both 
prime second round draft 
choices, will have a full training 
camp to work on the switch. 

"The talent is there among our 
starters," said Mazur, "and if 
someone new shows he can take 
over, it has to help. We do need at 
least a couple of men who can 
take up the slack if someone gets 

A promising new guard could 
be former tight end Tom Beer. A 
highly regarded blocker at his 
former position, the 6'3" Beer is 
now up to a solid 255 pounds. One 
of last year's reserves, Gary 
Bugenhagen, and a late season 
acquisition, former Buffalo Bill 
Angelo Loukas, are veteran 
guard prospects. Last year's big 
rookie, 6'5", 260 pound Dennis 
Wirgowski, will work at tackle 
and also back up at center. 

New faces in the offensive line 
group will be 1971 draft choices 
Layne McDowell of Iowa and 
John Rodman of Northwestern 
plus four free agents, center Ken 
Wilson of Toledo, guards Pierre 
Marchandoof Massachusetts and 
Dick Swatland of Notre Dame 
and tackle John Wright of 
Virginia Union. 

"This could be our strongest 
department. If they all stay 
healthy, we won't take a back 
seat to anybody when it comes to 
big rough, tough customers up 
front," said Mazur in appraisal of 
his rush line for 1971. "Berger has 
great size and should keep im- 
proving and Ike (Lassiter) is a 
proven all-star type. We have 
very high hopes for one of our top 
rookie prospects, Julius Adams," 
Mazur continuec', "and Twine 
(Houston Antwine) and Jimmy 
Hunt have more than held their 
own in a lot of wars up front. 
Twine especially should benefit 
from more support. He has had to 
do a lot all by himself." 

The final status of the front four 
could be determined by the 
progress of 6'4", 266 pound rookie 
defensive tackle Julius Adams, 
The new strongman from Texas 
Southern was chosen by the Pats 
as the first man drafted in this 
Year's second round of the draft. 

He showed his new coaching staff 
"a lot of power and raw ability" 
in the team's May rookie camp. 
One of pro football's giants, 
6'8", 290 pound Ron Berger will 
probably man the right defensive 
end spot he handled well a year 
ago. He will join another of the 
game's bigger rush line 
operatives, 6'5", 270 pound Isaac 
"Ike" Lassiter, as prime can- 
didates for the outside positions 
with the front line. 

Berger started off last season 
with a flourish as he was named 
the NFL's Defensive Player of 
the Week for his crushing per- 
formance in the Pats' regular 
season's opener. Lassiter, the 
rugged pass rusher obtained 
from the Oakland Raiders in a 
trade last year, proved an im- 
mediate help to the Pats as he 
helped them set a new team 
record for dumping the quar- 
terback in his first game in 
red, white and blue. The problem 
came later when an injury 
shelved big Ike for the remainder 
of the campaign. 

Antwine and Hunt, shorter than 
most other defensive lineman, 
explode with over a quarter of a 
ton of power. They share ten 
years of All-Star selections and 
have played together longer than 
any pair of defensive tackles in 
pro football. They may thrive on 
the new competition. 

"We expect some good com- 
petition from some of our other 
linemen too," said Mazur, "and 
most of them are new to us." 
Tackle Rex Mirich and end Mel 
Witt are returning veterans. Two 
6'7" heavies are rookies Hank 
Barton (Portland State) and 
Larry Jarmons (L.A. City 
College). They join 6'4", 250 
pound Glenn Woods, a former 
Houston Oiler, as leading free 
agent prospects. 

"We could come out with some 
pretty good depth in our rush 
line, " the Pats' head coach 

area shows as well as any what 
we're after," Mazur pointed out. 
"Look at Chey (Jim Cheyunski), 
a good young middle linebacker 
with a real mind for the game. 
Behind him are five guys after 
his job as starting middle 
linebacker-six men in all at that 
particular position. This," he 
remarked, "is what you need to 
get better-strong competition, as 
strong as possible." 

Behind Jim Cheyunski in the 
middle are returning veterans 
Marty Schottenheimer and Fred 
Whittingham. Then there is more 
size than usual in the person of 
former defensive tackle Ed 
Toner, who is down to 240 and has 
improved his speed. A second 
year rookie and a first year 
rookie complete the lineup. 
Former Notre Dame All- 
American Bob "Bobo" Olson was 
injured last year. Ho had been 
the Pats' fifth round draft pick in 
1970 and will try again this year 
at 225, over 20 pounds less than

time is ready for it), politics is an 
anesthetic. Ten years of talk about 
rice paddys, Viet Cong, Tets,

put anyone to sleep before Walter 
tells you what day it is. 

So the time is ripe tor a religious 
war. Next weekend. Brother 
against brother... neighbor against 
neighbor. ..that's something to sit 
up and watch T.V. for. 

This religious war will bring 
peace to the world. will end the 
struggle between the 'haves' and 
the 'have nots' by creating a whole 
new group-the 'don't wants'. ..the 
'don't wants' will finish the tension 
of the class struggle. Rich man, 
poor man, columnist and freak will 
cast off their bonds, that marks 
their class, and join the various 
religious movements. But, there's 
a catch before world peace can 
ensue, they will all join different 
religious outfits. And they will 
have to fight it out.. .and I suggest, 
next weekend around the campus 
pond for the battle. It will be 
colorful. I envision the main 
conflict accuring between the 

number one ranked Nebraska 
Orange Bowl champs. 

Big Ed Philpott and the team's 
Most Valuable Player, John 
"Bull " Bramlett, man the outside 
linebacker posts backed up by 
J.R. Williamson and last year's 
third round draft choice, Mike 
"Cat " Ballou, in reserve. Much is 
expected from this year's fifth 
round draft coice, Notre Dame 
defensive captain Tim Kelly. He 
and Fighting Irish teammate Bob 
Neidart lead a group of rookies 
into the outside linebacker 

"Ed (Philpott) is strong and 
obviously hates to lose," the 
Pats' mentor added, "and Bull is 
an all out guy who played all 
banged up last year. They were 
parts of a defense that had some 
pretty good games over the last 
couple of years." Originally it 
was thought that Philpott would 
be moved to the middle and 
Cheyunski would shift outside. 
Such is not the case, however, as 
both try to maintain their 
positions of last season. 

FIELD-"These boys have played 
very well at times. What we'll 
look for here is more con- 
sistency." These were John 
Mazur's words on the secondary. 
"They've been under fire the last 
couple of years," he continued, 
"especially when our pass rush 
went from strong to weak as last 
season went along." The fact was 
that until the halfway mark of 
last year's losing campaign, the 
Pats' pass defense was listed 
among the Conference leaders. 
The corners are Daryl Johnson 
and Larry Carwell and they've 
kept in touch during the off- 
season as co-hosts of a nightly 
sports talk show on a Boston radio 
station. "This is just what we'll 
need around here," Mazur in- 
terjected, "plenty of together- 
ness." The colorful Johnson 
blanketed some of the league's 
best receivers last year but 
admittedly suffered a few let- 
downs. Carwell is extremely 
aggressive at his post and has the 
size to follow through. 

The safeties are Don Webb, a 
ten year veteran who has 
retained his speed, and Clarence 
Scott, one of the most underrated 
members of the regular defense. 
Scott can also play cornerback. 
The backup foursome has been 
cornerbacks Johnny Outlaw and 
Randy Beverly plus safeties Art 
McMahon and Tom Janik. 
Outlaw is the team's fastest man. 
Beverly was a starter on the 
Super Bowl Champion New York 
Jets just two years ago. Janik 
combines reserve secondary duty 
with his job as the team's punter. 
Mazur sums up McMahon's 
ability himself: "If we had 40 Art 
McMahons, we would be win- 
ners." McMahon broke his ankle 
on the day he broke into the 
starting lineup last November. 
Former San Diego Charger 
safety Dick Farley has joined the 
Patroits as a free agent. He is a 
former Boston University star 
who was thought to be finished 
with pro football because of a 
back injury. Drnft choices Lewis

It will be a great scene. All the

"and it could come from our |

rookies." The coach's statements ;

tention. j

veteran Cappeletti has won many • 
big games for the Pats over the ; 
years. Gogolak, a one time ' 
number one draft choice, was 
acquired in a trade with Denver 
last year. 

There are a number of in- 
teresting competitors, among 
them an Ivy League soccer 
scoring champion from Harvard, ' 
a man called "Superfoot" and 
two other Britishers, a former top 
scorer among NCAA kicking 
specialists and several other free 
agents culled from the rookie 
camp in May. 

Solomon Gomez is the former 
Harvard soccer captain. He has 
never played football. Mike . 
Walker was the winner of a |

run by a Boston radio station 
throughout the United Kingdom. 
SGT. Peter "Tug" Wilson and 
Albie Evans were runners-up. All 
came from England and also 
have never played football. 
Gerald Warren, formerly with 
Green Bay and St. Louis Car- 
dinals, was the nation's top 
scorer among kickers when at 
North Carolina State three years 
ago. The other candidates are 
free agents Dan Rodgers, Bob 
Lampe and Donald Warner. 

Veteran punter Tom Janik will 
be pushed by rookies Dave Hardt 
and Mike Blake. Second year 
man Eddie Ray is also a 

The Patriots special teams led 
the AFL two years ago. Last year 
they hit that effective level often, 
but not enough, as several big 
breakdowns occurred. "Some of 
the real hitters bet going in this 
department," said Mazur, 
"McMahon and Gladieux are 
tops here, as are Beer, Whit- 
tingham and J.R. (Williamson). 
Rademacher and Tommy 
Richardson have also been good 
special teams men," he con- 
tinued, "and there have been a 
few others. If we add the depth 
we want, you'll find many of 
them out there on the bomb 

As Mazur sums it up, "We hope 
the talent will rise to the top and 
stay there. Many of our starters 
are as ready as they have been in 
a long time but we hope they will 
all be pushed. By the time we get 
into our new home, we want to be 
as ready as possible."

Unique Production 

Edward Albee's The Sandbox and Samuel Beckett's Act Without 
Words were given a unique and captivating production by the Masque 

What is unique about the two one act plays is that John Holland has 
written an accompanying score to each work; what is captivating is 
the musical accompaniment, enriching the poetry of Albee's words 
and enlarging the environment, the possibilities for movement in the 
Beckett piece. 

Both works took on new dimensions. They were removed from their 
conventional theatrical world and engulfed in a new metaphor, a new 
environment that at aminimumextended or reinforced the ideas in the 

The Sandbox was performed as an opera: the effect was to tran- 
sform the play. It was not the same absurd play that Albe wrote. The 
music although discordant had the effect of mitigating the discordant 
quality of the language and ideas in the play's fictional universe. The 
music unified the production in a way to obscure the intent of the 
original work. But the intent of the author is not necessarily the intent 
of the production. The production being the thing, though, the object of 
immediate importance to the audience, this new version of The 
Sandbox was efficiently directed by Dan Murphy and adequately sung 
by Donna Harlar as Grandma, John Maggs as Daddy, Dina Holland as 
Mommy and Kevin Patt as the Young Man, making it a fascinating 
piece of theatre. Act Without Words by Samuel Beckett lent itself more 
to the inclusion of music. They play is a mime operating on the ability 
of the performers to communicate ideas, moods, feelings, atmosphere 
without language. The music created an overwhelming sense of mooid 
and rhythm. It helped fill the stage with the awareness of man in his 
desperate existence, that eternal, futile, repetitive struggle. The stage 
at times laughed and at times throbbed with the joys and sorrows of 
human experience. The score underlined, further defined Beckett's 
view of life something that the score for Sandbox did not do. It added 
new depth by enlarging the perceptual universe the play works in. 

Stephen Driscoll directed the play and performed with grace and 
vitality in the first mime. Bonnie Bishoff and James A. Tibetts both 
showed a fine sense of comic timing and sensitivity in their roles in the 
second mime. Paul Wonsek designed the stage unit and lighting for 
both plays. 

The basic used platform was static in appearance and had a ten- 
dency to create an unnecessary distance between the audience and 
performers. The lighting was more efficient than creative. The 
costumes by Yvette Chamberland were well suited to the characters 
without being attention getting. 

The Sandbox and Act Without Words were unique and captivating 
adventures in the world of total theatre that could only enrich any 
audience's theatrical experiences. A big round of applause should go 
to the creator and promoters for the chance to witness the plays.

The Summer Statesman 





Since I have seen the first installment of 
this series in print I would like to reiterate 
an important point which was obliterated 
due to a typographical error: The inequity 
of the present structure of governance on 
campus is clearly the strangle-hold which 
faculty have over students in the legislative 
process. For any biU to have extensive 
debate on the floor of the Student Senate, 
and to then (if students are persistant 
enough) to have it re-debated in the Faculty 
Senate with only minimal student input is a 
corrupt structure. 

Having clarified that point we shall 
consider the deliberations of the Joint 
Commission on Campus Governance and 
then the philosophy of their recom- 
mendation of a University Senate. 

The Joint Commission on Campus 
Governance, as legislated by the various 
Senates, was composed of four faculty 
members, four undergraduate students, two 
graduate students, and two administrators. 
Deliberations began in March, 1970, with the 
goal of having at least some preliminary 
recommendations by May, 1970. To describe 
the Commission is difficult, for it was a 
student-faculty-administration committee 
at the ideal. It was a group of people who 
respected each others position, were 
generally friendly with each other, and who 
were interested in seeing that the gover- 
nance structure of this campus was as 
responsive to individuals and groups, and 
was as efficient, as was possible. It is im- 
possible for me to convey the lack of ten- 
sions and the ability of the members of the 
Commission to relate to each others 
positions effectively. Attending Commission 
meetings was in some sense enjoyable for it 
was an oasis in the desert of student-faculty 

The first few meetings of the Commission 
were, in this author's estimation, the mort 
important, for here the hard decisions were 
made as to what kind of governance 
structure was required and what ratios of 
participation seemed valid. There was a 
surprising sense of agreement in the 
Commission on certain substantive points, 
agreement which could have been the basis 
for a much more far-reaching and radical 
document except for one factor: Each 

The University Goes On? 

member of the Commission was acutely 
aware that this document would have to be 
acceptable to the constituency he 
represented. The task of the Commission 
therefore became one of devising a struc- 
ture which would allow for, and even en- 
courage, necessary change in the future 
while protecting those areas which each 
constituency considered sacred. In en- 
dorsing a university senate model with 
extensive safe-guards in those areas of vital 
constituency concern, the Commission felt it 
had devised an adequate system of checks 
and balances and had structured a truly 
innovative, workable, and responsive 
system of governance for the University of 

deal with matters of concern within the 
constituency and which also had some veto 
powers over the Senate in certain specified 
areas. The constitution of the Senate 
provided for committees with weighted 
memberships to deal with those issues 
which were of concern to more than one 
constituency but which were of primary 
concern to one particular group. I'here were 
other committees which were equally 
proportioned between the constituencies. 
The philosophy espoused by the Com- 
mission in recommending this structure was 
primarily that governance was a joint 
concern of those at this campus. The 
Commission felt that while these structural 
changes would not obliterate the deep- 


What emerged from the Commission 
early on in the deliberation, but after ex- 
tensive discussion, was a plan for a 
University Senate composed of seventy 
faculty, forty-three undergraduate students, 
twelve graduate students, and five 
professional staff members. The Senate was 
essentially a unicameral body with separate 
conferences of the various constituencies to 


seeded tensions within the twentieth century 
American university experience, they would 
aid in diminishing tensions directly caused, 
nourished, or escalated by an essentially 
disjointed, poorly organized, unresponsive, 
uneducational, and unjust governance 
system. The Commission attempted to 
create a visible and participatory structure, 
but in doing so it did not absolutely reject the 

traditional academic roles of student, ad- 
ministrator, faculty. These roles were not 
reinforced, but the Commission left that 
battle to some other time, realistically not 
wishing to cause controversy which would 
undermine the acceptability of its report. 

A major aspect of the recommendation 
was that members of different con- 
stituencies would be involved in the 
discussion of issues well before they were of 
crisis proportions. This, it was felt, would be 
educationally as well as governmentally 
sound, for it would help foster a greater 
awareness of each groups concerns and 
points of view before the "locking in" 
process so often typified in intra-campus 

Recognition was also given to the con- 
tention that all aspects of policy-making 
should be vested in the hands of the 
academic community, with significant 
administrative input, where openness and 
critical evaluation would (or should) be the 
natural order. No longer should ad- 
ministrators be the powerful chairmen of 
committees which set policy, nor should 
policymaking committees have roles as 
hearing or judicial committees. 

An excruciatingly difficult decision was 
that of the various ratios of participation. As 
for the Senate itself, the feeling was that 
faculty had a certain degree of professional 
expertise, and a greater commitment to the 
University than did the other groups, thus 
justifying their larger percentage of Senate 
seats. (Regardless of that fact, which is one 
which this author is not in total agreement 
with, the proposal had absolutely and 
positively no chance of passage had the 
faculty been denied at least the visage of 
majority control.) the Commission, after 
investigation of other campuses with 
university senates, was convinced that bloc 
voting (voting of each constituency as a 
whole) would probably not take place. 
Therefore, the Commission felt that in 
actuality no one constituency would ever 
control the Senate. 

The next, and final, installment of this 
series shall focus on the rejection of the 
report and the reasons for opposition as well 
as some personal observations.

for half-day children. Children 
will be accepted for morning or 
afternoon, except in special 
cases where a need for full-time 
care is demonstrated by the 

From Sept. 1 to June 1 Monday 
through Friday, the center will 
care for children from 7:30 a.m. 
to 5:30 p.m. The morning and 
afternoon shifts will change at 
12:30 p.m. Children will be ac- 
cepted on a one-semester basis, 
and children already enrolled 
will have priority for acceptance 
to second semester. 

Eligibility for acceptance to 
the Day Care Center will be set 
up this way for the 78 spaces 
available: 40 one-shift spaces for 
children of undergraduates, 30 
one-shiti spaces for children of 
graduates, and eight one-shift 
spaces for children of non- 

professional UMass employees. 
(Non-professional employees 
include secretaries, main- 
tenance workers, and dining 
commons workers; and exclude 
faculty members and ad- 
ministrators. ) Only one child per 
family will be accepted. 

Applications for the first 
semester may be made until 
Friday, August 27, to Steve

A contract about to be 
awarded by the University has 
been challenged by Rep. Walter 
J. Boverini, (D— Lynn), and a 
legislative delegation from Lynn 
has scheduled a hearing for 
Wednesday with the state 
purchasing agent to protest the 
impending contract award. 

The university is purchasing 
an IRO-490 Crystallographic 
system for its chemistry 
department at the Amherst 
campus. The XRO-490 measures 
materials in metals. 

Boverini, a member of the 
committee on education, said 
yesterday that he was "ap- 
palled" to discover that the 
university intends to award a 
contract to a firm from Holland. 

Boverini said that General 
Electric of Lynn, meeting all 
specifications, submitted a low 
bid of $48,000, but the university 
has reported that it intends to 

award the contract to Enraf 
Nonius of Holland, which en- 
tered a bid of $50,000. 

"With the employment 
problems we have," said 
Boverini, it is inconceivable to 
me that a state university would 
bypass the low-bidder from 
Massachusetts to buy the same 
product from Holland at a higher 

Rick Shanor, a news 
representative for the 
University said that the bid of 
General Electric was rejected 
because it didn't meet 
specifications. He said that GE's 
protest of the UMass decision 
was "normal procedure". 

"When a bidder is rejected, he 
is allowed to protest the 
decision. There has been no 
action of awarding any contract. 
There has been a protest lodged 
by GE and there's a hearing 
scheduled on the matter July 14. 

"There were five bids made 
for the XRO-490," Shaner said. 
"Three of them-including GE's- 
were discarded because they 
didn't meet specifications. 
Enraf Nonius's was the fourth 
bid. So the decision was made 
for the fourth. 

"Enraf Nonius is not a com- 
pletely foreign company. The 
company operates out of Holland 
and New York City and the XRO- 
490 is made in the United States, 
although some of its parts are 
made in Holland. 

"The XRO-490 was chosen by 

representatives of the chemistry 
department at UMass," he 
continued, "so the decision was 
made by the people who would 
use it and it has to do with the 
capabilities of the machine." 

The entire Lynn legislative 
delegation, which is comprised 
of Boverini, House Majority 
Leader Thomas W. McGee, 
Reps. Philip N. Carney, James 
Smith, and James J. Carrigan, 
and Sen. Charles V. Hogan, is 
expected to attend the hearing 
with State Purchasing Agent 
Alfred Holland. 

It also is expected that of- 
ficials from General Electric 

will attend the hearing.

ECONOMICS 214, 215 Economics 

A systematic application and 
critical evaluation of the basic 
analytic concepts of economic 
theory, with an emphasis on money 
and why it's good. Fixed coef- 
ficient production functions, cost 
cind supply curves, and non- 
convexity comprise the first 
semester, witn the second 
semester concentrating on 
spending, making change, and 
keeping a neat wallet. The Federal 
[{oserve System is analyzed, and 
advanced students are coached in 
the proper method of filling out a 
bank cieposit slip. Other topics 
include: Inflation, Depression, and 
how to dress for each. Loans in- 
terest, and welching.

ENGLISH 269 Writing for the Stage 
All drama is conflict. Character 
development is also important. 
Also what they say. Students learn 
that long, dull speeches are not as 
effective, while short, "funny" 
ones seem to go over well. Sim- 
plified audience psvcholojgy is 
explored: Why is a play about a 
lovable old character named 
(iramps often not as interesting in 
the theater as staring at the back of 
.someone's head andlrying to make 
him turn around? Interesting 
aspects of stage history are also 
explored. For example, before the 
introduction of italics, stage 
directions were often mistaken f^r 
dialogue, and great actors 
frequently found themselves 
saying, "John rises, crosses left." 
This naturally led to em- 
barrassment and, on occasion, 
dreadful notices. The phenomenon 
is analyzed in detail, and students 
are guided in avoiding mistakes.

ASTRONOMY 120 Fundamental 

A detailed description of the 
universe and its care and cleaning. 
The sun, which is made of hot gas, 
can explode at any moment, 
sending our entire universe hur- 
tling to destruction; students are 
advised what the average citizen 
can do in such a case. They are also 
taught to identify vanous con- 
stellations, such as the Big Dipper, lifj"' 

HISTORY 106 History of European 

Ever since the discovery of a 
fossilized eohippus in the men's 
washroom of Siddon's Cafeteria. 
East Rutherford, New Jersey, it 
has been suspected that at one lime 
Europe and America were con- 
nected by a strip of land that later 
sank, or "became East Rutherford, 
New Jersey, or both. This throws a 
new perspective on the formation 
of European society and enables 
historians to conjeciure about why 
it arose in an area that would have 
a much better Asia. Also 

studied is the decision to hold the 
Renaissance in Italy. 


Standard mathematics has 
recently been rendered desolete by 
the discovery that for years we 
have been writing the numeral '5' 
backwards. This has led to a 
reevaluation of counting as a 
method of getting from one to ten. 
Students are taught advanced 
concepts of Boolean algebra, and 
formerly unsolvable equations are 
dealt with by threats of reprisals.

MUSIC 207, section 2 The Recorder 
The student is taught how to play 
"Yankee Doodle " on this end- 
blown wooden flute, and 
progresses rapidly to the Bran- 
denourg Concertos. Then slowly 
back to "Yankee Doodle." 
Credit 1-2. 

MUSIC 312 Advanced Music Ap- 

In order to "hear" a great piece 
of music correctly, one must: (1) 
know the birthplace of the com- 
poser, (2) be able to tell a rondo 
from a scherzo, and back it up with 
action. Attitude is important. 
Smiling is bad form unless the 
composer has intended the music 
to be funny, as in "Till Eulen- 
spiegel ", which abounds in 
musical iokes (although the 
trombone has the best lines). The 
ear, too, must be trained, for it is 
our most easily deceived organ and 
can be made to think it is a nose by 
bad placement of stereo speakers. 
Other topics include: the four-bar 
rest and its potential as a political 
weapon. The Gregorian Chant: 
Which monks kept The beat. 
Credit, 4. 

PHILOSOPHY 132 Introduction to

frontation with the Creator of the

New England Patriots 
To Arrive Here Soon 

Within till' next two weeks the New England Patriots (the "Bay State 
boys") will arrive at their summer training camp here in Amherst. This 
will be the third consecutive year they have been here on the UMass 
campus, and it is expected that there will be much new interest in a team 
which possesses a new name, an exciting new star-Heisman trophy 
winner Jim Plunkett, a relatively new coach in John Mazur and a long 
awaited new stadium in Foxboro. 

Although they may have lost the best defensive lineman prospect in the 
last few years, Phil Olsen, because of a technicality in Olsen's contract, 
they seem likely to improve upon last year's dismal season. Pierre 
IVlarchando and Nick McGarry, two stalwart UMass football players who 
were not permitted to play last fall because of an over-zealous ruling by 
Yankee Conference Athletic officials, will be among the athletes at- 
tempting to make the club here this summer. 

The following is part of a continuous round-up of Patriot news which 
will appear regularly in the Statesman this summer. 

On a rainy weekend two months ago some 70 prospects of the New 
England Patriots reported for an early spring training camp at Curry 
College. A few had been with the Patriots before but were switching 
positions this year or were coming back from injuries. Others were the 
team's twelve draft choices of 1971, led by pro football's top selection, 
quarterback Jim Plunkett. But most were free agents trying to show 
enough to be invited back to the Patriots regular training camp in July. 

One month later, the results are in. This weekend Patriots head coach 
John Mazur revealed which of the large free agent group would be 
returning. The remaining hopefuls will number two dozen plus a surprise 
quarterback find. The good looking, 6'3",220 lb. quarterback prospect, 
Mike Blake of Baldwin-Wallace and Concord, New Hampshire, leads the 
offensive rookies. He is joined by wide receivers Maceo Coleman of 
Tennessee State, Eric Stolberg of Indiana, John Bonistalli of Boston 
College and Gary Orcutt of U.S.C. 

New running back prospects in July will be converted linebacker Don 
Wade (Miami of Ohio), Ron Jurewicz of Wake Forest, Larry Hicks of 
Livingstone College, Eric Dadd, a club football product from Fordham, 
and one of the nation's top small college rushers, Steve Pelot of South 

Former U. Mass lineman Pierre Marchando, Toledo center Ken Wilson 
and tackle John Wright of Virginia Union are offensive linemen who 
have signed as free agents. 

Among the better known defensive free agents who passed the 
preliminary trials are All-American middle linebacker Jerry Murtaugh 
from the nation's number one ranked Nebraska Cornhuskers and local 
boy Dick Farley from Danvers, a former starting safety with the San 
Diego Chargers. Overlooked in the draft because of a question of speed, 
Murtaugh will start for the West in the Coaches' All-American Game in 
Lubbock, Texas later this month. Farley, a former Boston University 
captain who was a regular for the Chargers as a rookie, was supposed to 
have suffered a career-ending injury but passed a physical and will at- 
tempt a comeback. 

Two defensive linemen invited back are William Henry "Hank" Barton 
III, a 6'7", 242 lb. pass rusher from Portland (Oregon) State, and Glenn 
Woods, a 6'4", 255 lb. former Houston Oilers Taxi Squad member from 
Prairie View College. 
Notre Dame's Bob Neidert joins Nebraska's Murtaugh as a linebacker. 
Competing with Farley as free agents in the secondary will be Tyrone 
Judson (U.S.C), Perry Pruett (No. Texas St.), Pete Quinn (No. Carolina 
Central) and another former Houston Oilers cab squad member, Robert 
Smith from Miami (Ohio). 

Kicking specialists returning from the May 7 rookie camp are Gerald 
Warren (No. Carolina St.), Dan Rodgers (Montclair) and Bob Lampe 

Four new free agents signed since the early camp are 6'7", 278 lb. 
defensive tackle Larry Jarmone (Los Angeles City College), 6'3", 232 lb. 
tight and Dick Hill (Texas at Arlington) and kickers Don Warner (In- 
diana) and Solomon Gomez (Harvard). 


Boston's biggest banker joins the area's strongest restaurant owner in 
signing contracts with the New England Patriots for the 1971 National 
Football League season. Patriots General Manager Upton Bell an- 
nounced that 6'8". 292 pound Ron Berger, a defensive lineman, and 6'1", 
254 pound Len St. Jean, an offensive guard, are the latest veterans to 
agree to terms. 

The giant Berger, known as "the Whopper", was a starter at right 
defensive end a year ago for the Pats although he missed several games 
with an injury. He is entering his third pro season and currently ranks as 
the biggest man in pro football. Since there is a chance Berger may be 
moved inside to tackle this year, he has worked overtime with weights 
and increased his own weight to a solid 292 pounds. "The Whopper" has 
been augmenting his weight program with an off-season executive 
position in customer relations with the Commonwealth National Bank of 

Boston. . ,, 

Berger moves into competition with veteran All-Star Isaac Ike 
Lassiter, 1971 second round draft selection Julius Adams and veteran 
tackles Houston Antwine and Jim Hunt, among others, in jousting for 
starting jobs on a defensive rushline that head coach John Mazur claims, 
"could be our strongest department this season." 

A prime contender for strongest restaurateur honors is the Pats other 
new signee, guard Len St. Jean. The stocky St. Jean, who last month took 
over the management of Redwood South Restaurant in Hanson, is em- 
barking on his eighth pro campaign. Known to his teammates as the 
"Boston Strongboy". he is a former lumberjack from the northern woods 
of Michigan. For the second time in three years, St. Jean was named last 
season the Pats' Unsung Player of the Year. 

When this year's training camp opens, the Patriots starting offensive 
line will be together in good health for the first time since the end of the 
1969 season. Last year injuries began to sideline members of the starting 
five-man unit early in the pre-season. Position switches were eventually 
made and the group was unable to gain the form that shot them to the top 
of the standings in pass protection and blocking for the running game in 
1969. .

''Bachelors Degree With 
Individual Concentration 


An artist wants to study zoology, 
a coed hopes to work with 
profoundly retarded, and a 20- 
year-old feels he's "loo young to 
have a definite goal." 

So. having interests which don't 
fit neatly into an already 
established major at UMass, they 
turn to a new program called 
BDlC-(Bachelor's Degree with 
Individual Concentration.) 

About 60 students were enrolled 
last academic year, the first year 
of the program which was begun as 
a two-year experiment. So far 
about 30 new applications have 
come in for next year. 

BDIC offers undergraduates a 
chance to design their own majors 
as alternatives to standard majors. 
Grades are not a factor in ad- 
mission to the program; instead 
students are judged on rationality 
of their goals, proposed courses of 
study, and the adequacy of the 
University's facilities to meet their 
programs. Statistics show that 
approximately one-third of BDIC 
students raise their averages once 
they work under the program 
which enables them to take more of 
the courses they are interested in 
and less of the "requirements." 
Students enter as second semester 
sophomores or as juniors and 
spend two to two and a half years in 
the special program. 

The idea for the special 
bachelor's degree program was 
first suggested by a group of 
students, faculty members, and 
administrators in 1968. For the 
next year, a student-faculty 
committee worked on a specific 
program, and in 1970 began 
enrolling students. 

"We feel the BDIC program is a 
good way for the self-motivating 
student to pursue his special in- 
terests," says Assoc. Prof. W. 
Leigh Short, * of chemical 
engineering, chairman of the BDIC 
supervising committee. "The 
students get an extra touch of 
individual counseling on this large 
campus, and a sense that all their 
courses have meaning for their 
specific goals." Other members of 
the supervising committee are 
Assoc. Prof. Anthony Borton, 
veterinary and animal sciences, 
and Assoc. Prof. Arthur F. Kinney, 

In their proposals to the BDIC 
committee, the students explain 
what they want to study and why. 
Some comments: "My 

professional goal is to teach 
reading to children in a city school 
system. semester I will be 
tutoring reading at the Nor- 
thampton County Jail." 

"The purpose of my individual 
concentration will be to prepare 
myself in the field of East Asia 
Journalism, centering around 

"My personal goal is to acquire a 
well-rounded background of man 
and his environment. My 
vocational goal is to explore the 
biological interrelationships that 
do exist, or could exist, between 

"My goal is to integrate different 
schools of thought such as speech 
therapy, physical therapy, and 
psychology so that I will he 

equipped to work with profoundly 

retarded children." This last 

statement is from Miss Mary Anne 

Lamed, a sophomore of Wenham. 

Mary Anne was an education 

major, but found that courses 

which would help her most in 

working with profoundly retarded 

were taught not in the School of 

Education, but in various other 

departments--such as speech, 

physical education. and 

psychology. As an education major 

she could not fit enough of these 

courses into her program so 

planned to transfer to the 

University of Wisconsin, which, 

she felt, had a program more 

related to her desired field of work. 

The special majors program 
means "a lot of work" for Mary 
Anne, but it also means she is able 
to concentrate on her special in- 
terests. All BDIC students must 
file evaluation reports twice each 
semester, and meet for counseling 
sessions with their sponsors. "The 
paper work is worth it," says Mary 
Anne, because it means studying 
for "what I want to do with my 

Another student not quite sure 
what he wants to do with his life is 
studying folklore which involves 
courses in sociology, anthropology, 
and other disciplines. John 
Calagione of Milford is interested 
in various forms of art, cultural 
values, and other aspects of life in 
non-Western European countries. 
Though folklore is the oral 
literature of a society, some of 
these stories are being written 
down as society progresses. John 
wants to analyze some of these 
recorded stories in terms of con- 
temporary social theory. 

One problem of our society, he 
says, is that it "can't get a clear- 
cut picture of itself." One way to do 
this, might be to look at other 
societies and find different ways of 
determining cultural values, he 

As society gets larger, more 
specialists are needed, and "some 
people specialize themselves out of 
being effective," he says. So, to 
John the BDIC program is im- 
portant because it may help 
develop a breed of people he feels 
is needed today-"people familiar 
with an interdisciplinary approach 
to problems." 

Another student in the special 
program is purposely learning a 
specicrtization-one she hopes is 
needed. Bonita Elbaum of 
Longmeadow is combining art and 
zoology, with hopes of becoming a 
medical illustrator. When Bonnie 
was a zoology major, she did not 
have enough time to take art 
courses. Another problem was that 
some art courses get filled quickly, 
so the department limits 
enrollment in these courses to art 

As a BDIC art-zoology major 
Bonnie has time for those courses 
she needs, and she can get into 
them. Just before she heard of the 
.special majors program, she had 
been thinking about transfering to 
another school. 

"Now, what I'm doing is picking 
out courses that are interesting to 
mc~like hnnp striirtnrp miisrlps 

histology, and art," she explains. 
In one art course, the assignment 
was to come up with an en- 
vironmental design, a room in 
which you'd like to live. Since this 
was not of much interest to Bonnie, 
she asked the teacher if she could 
do something else instead. She did 
drawings of human skulls she 
borrowed from the zoology 

For her, too, the special BDIC 
major has meant much more work, 
paper work and course work. She 
says, "I'm working, but I'm happy. 
It does make a difference." 

Peter Wood of Sharon wants to 
be a minister. So, he'd like to take 
courses which concern people. 
Through BDIC he takes 
psychology, sociology, philosophy, 
and English at UMass-plus 
religion courses at other schools in 
the Five-College Area (Smith, 
Mount Holyoke, Hampshire, and 
Amherst Colleges). 

Next year he will be a student 
minister in nearby Florence, and 
will earn three academic credits 
for his apprenticeship. He'll also do 
some counseling in nearby public 
schools as part of a special com- 
munity mental health project-for 
another three credits. 

He would have been a 
psychology major for his pre- 
seminary training, but the BDIC 
program allows a wider variety of 
courses in other disciplines as well. 
Mythopoeic studies, the study of 
story-making, is Paul Wilson's 
major. His special program allows 
time to study Greek, and other 
classics he needs to delve into 
mythology. From UMass he hopes 
to go to graduate school for con- 
tinued studies. 

But he, and dozens of others at 
UMass, are studying what they 
want to study-in a supervised 
manner, with individual coun- 
seling, and freedom to adapt 
programs to meet their needs. This 
is the Bachelor's Degree with 
Individual Concentration.

Nixon's Latest 

President Nixon's pronouncements on the use of drugs 
have always taken a consistent tone. Nixon is unalterably 
opposed to th5 legalization of any drugs, including 

He has what he calls sound reasons for his attitudes. 
What he lacks is an understanding of why the drug user 
likes to use drugs. Typically, a drug user tends to laugh at 
Nixon instead of taking him seriously. Listening to Nixon 
drone on about the :^vils of drug use becomes rather like 
reading Dear Abby lulling someone to watch out for the 
evils of a drive-in mo'ie. 

But Nixon's latest mouthings on the subject sound a little 
more ominous than all the rest. He said the U.S. is turning 
to "drugs and defeatism" and approaching the decadence 
that destroyed Rome and Greece. We need a moral 
regeneration, he says, but we have the strength to pull 

We wonder what sort of "moral regeneration" the 
President is tall-ing about. The death throes of the Roman 
Empire were cut short by the invaders from Germany and 
Greece suffered a similar fate at the hands of Alexander 
the Great. Does Nixon envision a "regeneration" of this 
order for the United States? Probably not. But Nixon's 
tone and his message, not to mention his Justice Depart- 
ment, may lead one to wonder. 

It may lead you to wonder when a woman in New York is 
threatened with jail because a package that was 
delievered to her and addressed to the former occupant of 
her apartment turns out to be full of grass. She is 
threatened with a jail sentence unless she helps to trap the 
person the package was intended for. It may lead you to 
wonder when the death penalty is demanded for heroin 

None of these things seem to happen with public ap- 
proval from anyone higher up than the circuit judge or city 
police or Congressman who say and do them. But these 
things could never happen without the de facto approval of 
the Federal government. 

Perhaps Nixon's regeneration will consist of a quiet little 
undermining of an entire segment of the population, since, 
as he puts it, it is "particularly the young" who turn to 
drugs and defeatism. 

Nixon counts on his silent supporters more than we 
realize. They listen to what he has to say and they will back 
up anyone who supports Nixon. It seems unlikely that 
Nixon would talk about "regeneration" to a Kansas City 
audience if he thought people weren't concerned about 
kids freaking out in Kansas. 

Pennant Fever 

The Boston editorial writers got all excited last week and 
started crowing about the Red Sox and pennant fever, 
which seems to be sweeping Boston recently. No one 
should be expected to believe it until they see it, but the 
Red Sox don't seem to be doing too bad for themselves. 

Last night they beat the Indians 3-2. A couple of days ago 
they beat the Yankees 12-7 and now they stand just 2 1/2 
games behind Baltimore. Last night they had a twi-night 
doubleheader in Cleveland, and you'll have to get the 
Boston papers for the scores, but if they won both they'll be 
breathing hot and heavy down Baltimore's neck. 

Pennant fever strikes the most unlikely people. After all, 
anyone from Massachusetts, as most of us are, has had to 
listen to and read about the Sox whether he wanted to or 
not. Pennant fever gets you when you least expect it. But 
maybe your defenses are down when it grabs you. But any 
respite, no matter how nonsensical, is welcome in Amherst 
and UMass in the summer. 

Boys State 

Amherst--"Mr. White, I've learned more here about 
people than I've ever learned at school." High school 
junior David Dion of Whitman, Massachusetts gushed 
his thank you to the short, paunchy white-haired man 
who was the Massachusetts American Legion 
Chairman of Boys State. 

Begun the year before the War (the 2nd world war, 
that is) ended, 3oys State is an annual gathering held 
across the country and underwritten and run by the 
Legion. The 485 Massachusetts boys assembled June 
18-26 at the Amherst campus of UMass would learn the 
"duties, rights, and responsibilities of American 
citizenship" by participating in mock governments 
and debates and by listening to noted authorities on 
good citizenship such as Representative and would-be 
mayoress of Boston, Louise Day Hicks, Congressman 
James A. Burke, former speaker of the Massachusetts 
House and former candidate for governor Maurice A. 
Donahue as well as local pols and Legionnaries. 

Boys State is not exactly a cross-section of 
Massachusetts youth. To be selected, a high school 
junior must have an 80 or better average and must 
have, in the words of a brochure sent to each high 
school in the state, "outstanding qualities of leader- 
ship, good citizenship and courage... good character 
and health." Principals theoretically make the final 
selection decisions, although Herbert G. White, the 
Boys state Chairman admits that some high schools 
•^lect the delegates, in some towns the Legion Post 
chooses the boys, and regrettably, some principals 
extract desired behavior from students by threatening 
Boys State attendance either as a punishment or an 

The result has been in the past a preponderance of 
student council presidents and class officers, although 
Larry DiCara, a Boys State counselor just graduated 
from Harvard and a candidate for the Boston City 
Council argues that there are fewer student leader 
types this year. 

There certainly are fewer blacks and Spanish- 
speaking students-down a dozen from 1970's twenty- 
five. But "both parties (in the mock election) 
nominated a colored boy last year", according to 
White, and there have been "Negro" officers elected 
in the past. 

It costs the Massachusetts Legion $3S,(X)0 with the 
local posts contributing $52 per sponsored boy plus 
travel expenses to UMass. Each boy is given a 
Selective Service information pamphlet, five dollars 
spending money, and two red-trimmed Boys State tee- 
shirts (which must be worn for the entire week). The 
boys in turn, must follow a schedule and obey 
enumerated rules. 

"Reveille and clean up quarters" is at 6 AM. Flag 
saluting is 45 minutes later. Breakfast and sick call 
follow with mock government meetings afterwards. 
The afternoon brings lunch, a law lecture, organized 
recreation, and "lowering of the colors", with the 
evening reserved for the guest speaker. "Lights out" 
is at 10:30 P.M. 

The rules a Boys Stater follows are many: 
"I will write my folks at home at least three 
times during the weeks at Boys State... 
"Violent personal contact, wrestling, boxing 
and the like are not to be encouraged... 
"Smoking will not be permitted in the dor- 

"Counselors should be on the alert for any 
obscene pictures, literature, etc. Commandeer 
all such and report all facts to the Director for 

"A friendly word of advice or a casual hint will 
serve to clear up cases of boys inclined to use 
language unbecoming a gentleman. Counselors 
need not be prudes, but the boys will appreciate 
and approve of this attitude with respect to 
'aggravated' profanity... 
"All members of the staff and all Counselors 
shall be referred to at all times as 'Mister*. All 
members of Boys State shall be referred to at 
all times as 'Citizen'." 
Many of the 48 supervising adults and counselors 

are young and ask to be called by their first names. 
Even Mr. White accepts sideburns below the earlobe, 
and he overlooks long hair. "There's much more 
respect this year", he observed in comparison to the 
post-strike days of 1970. 

The government simulation is elaborately divided 
into four counties-Eisenhower, MacArthur, Patton, 
and Pershing-and 12 cities and towns, commonly 
called "T-5" or "C-1", but officially named after 
military battles like Iwo Jima, Okinawa, and 
Guadalcanal. Local, county, state, and two federal 
senators are elected by citizens of either the 
Federalist or Nationalist parties. Each level of 
government passes resolutions or legislation. 

Because Boys State is limited to state and local 
matters, issues which the Legion has taken a stand on, 
controversy, are in the words of non-Legionnaire 
DiCara "blunted by common sense." Besides, DiCara 
added, among high schoolers, "Viet Nam is nearly not 
an issue any more. The issues that have arisen are 
lowering the drinking and driving age, a graduated 
income tax and other non-descript "can't remember" 
statements on welfare. 

A perennial issue in the mock legislature is the 
combining of the Legion-sponsored Boys State with its 
Women's Auxiliary-sponsored Girls State. White 
shrugs off comments about going coed with mutters 
about how they'd have "a job on our hands". DiCara, 
functioning as Convention Moderator, tells an 
anecdote that one of the citizens told him: 

"If we had Boys State and if we had Girls State 
together, we might as well have Baby State." 

Most of the boys at Amherst enjoy Boys State. It 
gets them out of school a week early, there's plenty of 
opportunity for wandering around the sprawling 
campus and for playing sports, and many friendships 
have been made. Although the Legion emphasizes the 
education aspects of the program, much is obviously 
lacking. The boys certainly learn more about the 
structure of government than most adults know, but 
the program is run without the mature cynicism of 
reality. Democracy certainly is wonderful, but the 
shock of finding out that there are lobbies and in- 
terests and prejudices and protests and a great 
amount of futility inherent in democracy probably 
creates not a few of the beer swilling silent Joes of 
tomorrow. The emphasis is not on questioning the 
processes of government, but on memorizing the 
constitutions. Boys State is even more artificial than 
the classroom. 

The Boys State program is far from pernicious; the 
attitudes generated by most of those running the 
program are. 

One citizen said it very subtly, "In a couple of 
weeks, we'll look back and think of how much fun we 
had. Right now, it's not so bad, except that it's awfully 
military fascist." 

The caste lines are distinct. Some people are not 
mature enough to door think certain things. They are 
called "boys". They must line up and salute the flag 
and must wear red-trimmed tee-shirts. Other people 
are mature and responsible. They are ca.lled "sir". 
They must tell the boys what to do and must wear blue 

This attitude was illustrated eminently when an 
oldish Legionnaire, genuinely repulsed, told a black 
UMass student, eating in the same dining hall that the 
staters were in, to remove his hat. (The student 
politely ignored him.) 

Another instance one of the boys claimed, was the 
image of "Herbie" who "left his Schlitz out on the 
table as we were passing by to tease us, because he 
knows we can't drink." 

If there was one person who kept everyone honest at 
Boys state in June, it was the kid, his tee-shirt stiff 
from sweat, who phoned his parents in Arlington, 
Massachusetts to take him home after the first 

"All you do," he complained to mom and dad, "is sit 
around, pray and salute the flag."

President Nixon has ordered 
government agencies to compile 
lists of persons, both in and out 
of government work, who have 
top secret security clearances. 
Apparently his intention is to 
reduce the number of clearances 
for better security. 

The President has also or- 
dered reviews of all clearances

Nixon's top aides, including

A new gasoline tax was signed 
into law in the Bay State the 
other day as Governor Sargent 
put his name to a bill that will 
raise $25 million in new revenue. 
Prices on gasoline will go up one- 
cent-per-gallon. The revenue 
from the measure, which brings 
state taxes on gas to 7.5 cents per 
gallon, will go to cities and towns 
for highway aid. 

On the subject of highways, 
the Commonwealth had to turn 
back $111 million to the Federal 
government because the Bay 
State couldn't find anywhere to 
spend the money. The excess is a 
result of Sargent's freeze on 
highway construction inside of 
Rt. 128. As a result of this 
disclosure earlier in the week, 
debate has started up once again 
as to whether or not 
Massachusetts "loses" the 
money entirely, or whether they 
are held by the Federal 
government to be dished out if 
and when construction starts in 

the state again.

This coming Tuesday, July 13, 
1971, the Summer Program will 
hold the second hike in its series 
of Outdoor Programs. The hike, 
which will leave from the 
Campus Center Traffic Circle 
(the bus stop near the garage 
exit) will be along the crest of 
the Holyoke Range on the 
Metacomet Monadnock Trail. 
Anyone interested in this or 
subsequent outdoor activities is 
urged to come. There is no ex- 
perience necessary; the hikes 
are at a leisurely pace and over 
relatively easy terrain. If you 
have a car, bring it if possible. 
Transportation will be arranged 
at the traffic circle on Tuesday. 
Everyone is welcome. 

A group composed of residents 
from Massachusetts' First 
Congressional District has been 
formed "to work for the 
nomination of Senator George 
MdGovern as the Democratic 
candidate for President in 1972." 

The announcement was made 
in a statement released today by 
Kenneth Mosakowski of 
Amherst, coordinator of 
Western Massachusetts Citizens 
for McGovern. The statement 
was sent in the form of a letter to 
some 500 western Massachusetts 
citizens who have been active in 
ecology, anti-poverty drives. 

court and prison reform, and the 
women's rights and peace 

Mosakowski noted in the 
statement that "Senator 
McGovern has been criticized by 
many potential supporters for 
what they describe as his lack of 
'charisma'." But, he said, 
McGovern was first of all the 
Democratic: Presidential 
aspirants "who publicly opposed 
the Vietnam War" in 1963, and 
the only Presidential contender 
"who has consistently opposed 
the draft, which Presidents 
Johnson and Nixon have used to 
raise manpower for Vietnam." 
He also cited McGovern's efforts 
since 1963 to "reduce our ex- 
cessive defense budget" and 
"convert the nation's war- 
oriented industries to a 
peacetime economy.'' 
Mosakowski added that, as 
Chairman of the Senate Select 
Committee on Nutrition and 
Human Needs, McGovern "has 
led the fight almost single- 
handed against hunger and 
starvation in America." "This," 
he concluded, "is the sort of 
'charisma' that we believe is 
worth supporting." 

.According to the statement, 
the western Massachusetts 
group will "work with eleven 
other Massachusetts support 
groups--one in each 

Congressional District--to 
assure a McGovern victory in 
the Massachusetts Presidential 
Primary next April." 

Mosakowski hopes to organize a 
massive voter registration drive 
between now and the primary.

Massachusetts Citizens for

Confusion over admissions 
policies to Summer Program 
events has led to a statement to 
the effect that only those with 
Summer School ID's will be 
admitted free to Summer 
Program events. All others must 
pay an admission fee. This 
applies only if there is a charge 
to an event. Most events like 
concerts and the like will be open 
to everyone without charge 
unless it rains. Then those with 
the ID will be seated before the 
general public. This policy is 
necessary because Summer 
School students paid an ac- 
tivities fee which cover ad- 
mission to Summer Program 


Do We Have To Kill Ourselves To Get There? 


We live in a country where 
people like to travel around. Most 
of our parents, and some of us, 
have to commute to work; we have 
to get to school somehow. We all 
like to go places for weekends and 
vacations; to see friends, movies, 
concerts, sports events; to go out to 
eat or at least to bring food home 
from the store. And for most of this 
we use cars-our own or someone 
else's. Cars are handy; in many 
cases essential. But our national 
dependence on the automobile is 
killing us, both instantaneously 
and gradually. Fifty-five thousand 
people are killed in crashes each 
year. This weekend isn't even over 
yet as I write this, but we've killed 
over 380. Automobiles are also 
responsible for half the air 
pollution in this country, producing 
not only highly visible and often 
irritating and dangerous smog, but 
also invisible particles of lead and 
asbestos, both deadly, in the air. 
We are also killing our land. We 
cover over millions of acres of 
often fertile, formerly productive. 

Room To Move: 

land with roads, cloverleafs, 
parking lots. Open land, parks, 
suburban and urban neigh- 
borhoods are destroyed. And ef- 
forts to f-hange to less destructive 
forms of transportation so far are 
awfully late and feeble. Archaic 
attitudes and technology combine 
with the big headstart pollution has 
to guarantee that things will get 
worse before—and if— they get 

Take the case of automobile air 
pollution, for example. The En- 
vironmental Protection Agency, 
EPA, has demanded drastic 
changes. By 1975 cars are required 
to reduce the emission of carbon 
monoxide, hydrocarbons and 
nitrogen oxides by 90% of current 
levels. But car manufacturers 
have been insisting they can't do it. 
Ruckelshaus, head of EPA, has 
told them if one company does 
meet the regulations, all will be 
expected to. This leads one writer 
to suspect that major automobile 
manufacturers will make sure that 
none of them does succeed. And 

even if all do, it is predicted that 
carbon monoxide levels in six 
major cities will still not reach 
acceptable levels until the 80's. In 
the meantime, no one can interest 
Detroit in anything other than the 
internal combustion engine. This 
despite the experiments now going 
on with using such varied devices 
as a modern form of the fly-wheel, 
steam cars (one was demonstrated 
to congressmen), and a freon- 
motor car sold to Nisson of Japan 
when US manufacturers ignored 
the invention. Nor have industry or 
government looked into a catalyst 
developed by Universal Oil 
Products that cuts pollutants by 
90%. The complaining industry 
spokesmen weren't even 
questioned about these possible 
alternatives to internal combustion 
at the EPA hearings. Everyone is 
hung up on what we've always 
done. We're pretty badly hooked on 
these dangerous monsters, and no 
one, least of all Detroit, really 
believes Ruckelshaus when he 
insists that a healthy environment 

is more important than power, 
convenience, or lowest possible 
price tag. 

But the problem goes far beyond 
car design. Our almost total 
dependence on cars for tran- 
sportation is itself ludicrous. Next 

time I'll dicuss the Highway Trust 
Fund and other conspiracies to 
force us to use these ridiculous 
machines, as well as some of the 
beginning efforts to give us other 
ways of getting there. 

The People's Place 

Room-to-Move is a student-run drug drop-in center, 
located in the basement floor of Wheeler House, op- 
posite the Copper Kettle Dining commons. It's a place 
where people can come in to get accurate information 
on all types of drugs, use the Center's books and ar- 
ticles library, listen to music, fool around with paints 
or clay, or just relax. 

The Center opened in the Spring of 1970 with a staff 
of twelve students working on a part-time, voluntary 
basis. The primary concern then was a drug education 
program, which the students had expressed a need for 
through a campus-wide random questionnaire. By the 
Fall, 1970, the staff had expanded to twenty-seven 
members and Room-to-Move's goals had increased 
proportionately. For one thing, we are no longer 
strictly a drug drop-in center (through that is our 
main concern). In addition to drugs we are now 
equipped to handle problems concerning draft 
counseling, abortion information, and other 
troublesome areas. 

Our four main objectives are to disseminate ac- 
curate information, offer educational workshops, 
provide basic counseling and referral procedures, and 

to serve the University community as a crisis in- 
tervention center for anyone bumming out. In ad- 
dition, we have a drug analysis service by which 
people can anonymously determine what drugs 
they're actually taking. We're open 24 hours a day and 
our staff members are on call anytime when needed, 
and can be reached by calling 545-0400 or 545-0401. 

All these things aside, Room-to-Move is a people's 
place. There's a Sensual Room where you can come 
and have a back rub; the Arts & Crafts Room is 
available for any kind of creative endeavors; and our 
library has the best books and articles available on 
drugs and drug-related matters. On Monday and 
Wednesday nights there are special art workshops 
ranging from batiking to leather goods. Or if you'd 
like, just come in to rap with us. We enjoy having 
company and making new friends. 

Once again, our name is Room-to-Move, in the 
basement floor of Wheeler House (two dorms down 
from the infirmary), our phone number is 545-0400 or 
0401, and we're open 24 hours a day, seven days a 
week. Come in and say hi! 

Draft Counselor's Corner 

Free Draft Info 


For those of you who are new to the UMass campus, it might 
interest you to know that there is a free draft information agency 
located on campus. Draft Counseling Services has its office in 923 
Campus Center, and is open from 9:00 a.m. to noon on weekdays. 
To make appointments for other times, or in case of emergency, 
you can call Gil Salk at 584-1542 in the evening. 

Now that you've got that information together, let's get on to 
some heavier stuff. As you may or may not know, there is no draft 
at the moment. Legislation to continue the draft for another two 
oppressive years is tied up in joint Congressional committee. The 
Mansfield ammendment about withdrawing all U.S. forces from 
Vietnam in nine months if the North Vietnamese release the POWs 
passed in the Senate but was unacceptable to the House. 

As a result, the draft law expired, and, legally, the SSS no longer 
exists. Until the differences are resolved and some legislation is 
passed and signed by Nixon, there ain't no draft. 

What does this mean? For starters, there is no induction call for 
the month of July, so no individual induction orders are being 
issued. Local boards have no authority to order people to report for 
physicals. There is no law requiring that eighteen-year-olds 
register to become cannon fodder. 

It probably also means that any reclassification made since July 
1 is illegal. It may mean that you could visit your local board and 
retrieve your file, as it is now being held by a non-governmental 
agency which has no legal right to it. 

Since the draft no longer has a legal existence, we are going to try 
to institute a citizen's suit to stop the use of taxpayers' money to 
pay SSS expenses such as salaries, rents, postage, duplicating 
costs, telephone, etc. 

I think that the important thing to note is that the SSS no longer 
has any control over your life~at least for the time being, until the 
new law is enacted. In the interim, you do not have to register. You 
do not have to obey any mailing sent by your board with a Date of 
Mailing on or after July 1, 1971. 

There is one thing which you should play safely on, however. If 
you received an undesireable classification, you should still mail 
your appeal letter to th? board within 30 days of the Date of Mailing 
on your classification card. Or, if you requested and received a 
form for some classification such as a hardship deferment or a CO, 
fill it out and return it within the time specified on the form.

Albee's Delicate Balance, 
Familiar And Frightening 

Pulitzer Prize winner first 
produced in 1966 investigates the 
varying relationships that exist 
between friends and within family 
structure. Harold Clurman claims 
that Edward Albee's A DELICATE 
BALANCE is superior to his more 
sensational WHO'S AFRAID- OF 
VIRIGINIA WOLF? and in this 
play Albee does capture our at- 
tention with his careful dramatic 
structuring of the precarious 

equilibrium of human relation- 
ships. The play examines what 
happens when the balance is upset 
or destroyed, and how that balance 
is maintained. 

The characters in A DELICATE 
BALANCE live with the agony and 
fear of emptiness. They can only 
try to maintain what they have, 
afraid of change-afraid they will 
destroy the status quo. Albee's 
world is both familiar and 
frightening. He makes us feel 
comfortable, at home it. because 

illusions and in the face of truthful 
confrontations it finally crumbles. 

In an interview with Michael 
Rutenberg, Albee said the point of 
the play is that. .."we lose.. .we 
develop a kind of arthritis of the 
mind, of the morality, and change 
becomes impossible finally." 

Direction is by Marya Bednerik; 
scenic and custom design by Jeff 
Fiala; and lighting by Nicholas 
Scott, members of the University 
Theater faculty.

Elvira Madigan Vehicle 
For Visual Virtuosity 

Thursday evening the Art History Group Summer 
Film Festival presents ELVIRA MADIGAN (6, 8, & 
10 P.M. in the S.U. Ballroom), a film which, on the 
testimony of its extravagantly laudatory reviews, 
(an lay claim to being the most beautiful cinematic 
work ever made. 

Indeed, Bosley Crowther of the New York Times 
was sufficiently moved to write, "Exquisite is only 
the first word to describe this exceptional film, 
rhere are others - poetic and sensitive, com- 
passionate and humane, poignant and eventually 
heartbreaking in its resolution of a universal 
dilemma of star-crossed lovers." 

Crowther's review, printed after the film ap- 
peared in the New York Film Festival, so in- 
Huenced American film distributors that a contract 
for ELVIRA MADIGAN's national distribution was 
signed before it had even appeared before a regular 
New York movie audience. It's resulting com- 
mercial success was definitely measured when 
Mantovani's horrible mutilation of Mozart's Piano 
Concerto No. 21 appeared on WTTT as the "Theme 
from Elvira Madigan". 

Films that dazzle the eye tend not to receive much 
analytical comment from critics beyond that they 
arc "beautiful". Other phases of movie production 
can receive excruciatingly minute goings-over, but, 
perhaps because of the evanescence and fluidity of 
the images, color cinematography rarely leaves 
more than a subjective feeling in the minds of film 


And so it is difficult to ascertain what it is that 
specifically elevates Jorgen Persson's photography 
so far above the average. Certainly the sensitive use 
of bright sunlight dancing on surfaces invites 
comparison with Impressionistic painting. While 
the persistent coverage of the sights and sounds of 
the countryside along with adroitly subjective 
camera angles lend the film a sensuality that is so 
subdued and constant as to reamin below the 

For me the most stunning moment occurs when 
the girl spits up some mushrooms she has eaten in 
desperation. The sinister breakthrough of harsh 
reality into their romantic milieu appears as sen- 
suous and beautifully innocent as the other organic 
processes we have come to associate with their 

The story, such as it is, is scarcely more than a 
vehicle for the film's visual virtuosity. A Swedish 
cavalry officer abandons his wife and children and 
flees his military duty to run off with a beautiful 
young circus performer. The romantic idyll is saved 
from pretentiousness by having uniformly excellent 
acting - Thommy Berggren was named best actor 
of Sweden and Pia Degermark was named best 
actress at Cannes ~ and by staying within the 
boundaries of its own context, even to the point of 
destroying the lovers when their aesthetic world is 
no longer possible. 

the world he creates is composed of 
those customs, beliefs and laws 
which mirror our own. Marriage, 
home, family and togetherness are 
smug foundations on which we 
proudly build the American way of 
life. However, in the absence of

"The People Are Pretty Goddamned Good 



Probably the biggest attraction at the 
University since Ryan Drum's Botany 101 
course and Eric "the rat" Walgren's revival 
type political-cultural-religious experiences 
were Wednesday evening Coffee Houses 
held last Spring in the Blue Wall cafeteria of 
the Campus Center. The Coffee Houses' 
return this summer begins tonight and will 
be held on following Tuesday nights from 9 
p.m. to 1 a.m. 

Ed Vadas, a 26 year-old native of Wor- 
cester, is the originator of the Coffee House. 
He got his start as an M.C. of a high school 
variety show because people thought he had 
a "funny sense of humor". While in the Air 
Force Ed started playing a wash-tub bass 
and worked his way up to the guitar, by way 
of the banjo. He played in Service talent 
shows and a bluegrass group which he was a 
member of, won base honors. Next he 
copped the single folk and ballad singer and 
self accompaniest category for Southeast 
Asia (they gave him a watch). Due to the 
laurels which were bestowed upon him, the 
Air Force decided to assign Ed for duty to 
the Air Force Special Services which meant 
Ed did 75 shows throughout Southeast Asia 
in places "where they never send Bob 
Hope". He played for Green Beret 
audiences of as few as nine people at 
remote fire-bases. 

The idea of a coffee house emerged from 
Ed's admittedly demented mind after ob- 
serving wandering folksingers having 
difficulty at the Top of the Campus. He felt 
students and people in Amherst could dig 
listening to folk music and drinking beer 
and, after pleading his case with Top of the 
Campus management the coffee house 
began in January of this year. 

Originally held at the Top of the Campus, 
the Coffee House was later forced to move to 
the Blue Wall Cafeteria since therewas often 
as much as a two and a half hour wait 
because of the 11th floor's small seating 
capacity. Initially this created some 
problems because the kids thought that they 
were being "fucked over" by the Top of the 
Campus management, but it eventually 
became evident to them-crowds of over 850 
people which the Coffe House drew, could 
not have been accommodated in the 300 
person maximum 11th floor. The Coffee 
House faced many problems including 
under-age drinking, but this was readily 
dealt with by dividing the room and only 
serving beer to the over 21 group. People 
respected the division-"lhe people were 
pretty goddamned good" about the whole 

problem thereby eliminating the possibility 
of an admission charge to police the place. 
Ed also had some problems with women's 
liberation due to his personality. "They 
thought I was attacking womanhood but we 

artists face. 

Over 80 performers were involved in the 
Coffee House. Most were ballad singers and 
for the most part performed non-original 
works. There was a good variety of folk. 

Big Ed Vadas 

talked and straightened the whole thing 
out ". New problems cropped up every week, 
but Ed listened to complaints even though 
he felt that most of them were unfounded. A 
constant complaint was the loudness of the 
crowd. Ed feels that a good performer can 
gain the respect of the crowd and thus the 
burden is on the performer. What is im- 
portant to Ed is that the performers have 
good equipment and every support that can 

blues and blue-grass music and everything 
from jugglers and accordianists Parviss 
playing a ninety-six string instrument. 
Strong performers proved themselves and 
many new faces were introduced to the 
campus including Joe, Doc, and Barbara 
and the Rattlesnake Gutter Strutters. 

The fact that 400-850 people attended each 
Coffee House obviously proved Ed's con- 
tention that there was a need for such a 

Frank Clark 

be afforded them, especially since they 
perform for free. As a performer himself, 
Ed understands the problems the individual 

"happening". The spin-off from the Coffee 
House was the founding of the Amherst 
Folklore Center and the new interest in 

coffee houses around campus, as well as 
local bars such as Quicksilver and others 
offering increased entertainment. "That's 
cool," says Ed "because there are many 
good performers in the area but not much 
money. Many live here but have to get gigs 
elsewhere to support themselves. Bands can 
really make it but folksingers have it really 

The Tuesday night Coffee House will have 
the same format as before except each week 
there will be two paid performers. "Some 
people have played six or eight times for 
free and we'd like to reimburse them a 
little." Ed wants to continue having good 
people and hopes that the non-paid people 
won't feel cheated ". The same people will 
play for free sometimes and get paid others, 
we don't want to create an elite. We expect 
more from those who get paid." 

The 18 year-old drinking law would have 
helped the Coffee House, Ed feels. "The 
under 21 crowd seems more into music, but 
maybe that is because they are not drinking. 
They are also more easily pleased. The 
large crowd creates a kind of electricity 
which a performer can appreciate. The 
variety of a crowd means that there's some 
appreciation for almost everyone. As a 
performer I like playing this Coffee House. 
The crowd really knows when someone is 

Ed needs performers and can usually be 
reached at 549-0739. The first Coffee House 
will feature Angel and Frank Clark. Angel is 
a contemporary folk singer who sings from 
the heart with serious intent and can really 
charm an audience. Clark is one of the finest 
blues guitarist and performer in New 
England. Beer and hard liquor will be 
served. The room will be experimentally 
divided the first week "until we can see 
what kind of a drowd we get." 

Also planned is a Saturday night show at 
the Top of the Campus from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. 
At the time of this writing it is slated to 
begin July 3 and is being billed as An 
Evening with Ed Vadas. It was Mike Egan's 
(Campus Center Management) idea. It 
should be "a combination of Laugh-In, D'ck 
Cavett and Zazu Pitts." It's an audience 
participation show with movies (Chaplin, 
Laurel and Hardy), singers (Angel and 
Greg Bullen), some talk (Ray Kurpiel of 
Room to Move talking about bad acid trips), 
demonstrations by the chef and the bar- 
tender and records, contests with small 
prizes, and a generally good time. 

"This summer could be far-out. Power to 
the people, right on."

My Father Always Said 

More Martha 

Mrs. Martha Mitchell has again taken telephone in hand 
and added her two cents worth to the uproar surrounding 
the Pentagon Papers case. Choosing the Washington Star 
as her outlet this time, Mrs. Mitchell said "I resent, regret 
and abhor that the news media has taken upon itself to 
interfere with possible lines of communication with the 
Viet Cong." 

After going on for some length about suppressing the 
press for its own good, Mrs. Mitchell then said that her 
remarks shouldn't be construed as an attack on the 
freedom of the press. On the contrary, Martha believes 
that the free press is the best thing the U.S. has going for it. 

Martha's remarks were apparently prompted by the 
presence of her 21-year old son in Viet Nam. "Can you 
imagine how this is affecting their morale on the front 
lines?" she asked. 

Yes, let's just imagine for a moment, Martha, how this 
will affect morale on the front lines. You're 19 years old 
and you used to believe in your country until you found out 
why you were sent to Viet Nam, You were supposed to save 
a small country from a "threat" that the men who sent you 
there could not apparently understand. It makes you feel 
real secure knowing that someone back home had a good 
reason for sending you to Viet Nam to fight. 

It makes you feel even better when you realize that 
perhaps the pubhc wasn't told the truth about why you 
were sent to Viet Nam. 

But what really makes your day is the fact that Martha 
Mitchell and all the others who were outraged by the 
printing of the Pentagon Papers can smile so sweetly 
while ripping you up the back by trying to intimidate their 
faithful friends, "the free press." 


My father said, "But you gotta go to college to get 
anywhere in life. If you don't have that degree you'll 
end up on some assembly line. You'll end up an 
electrician or a plumber... you want a good job one 
where you can wear clean clothes. You know when it 
comes time for a promotion they always take the guy 
with the degree." This rap went through my head in 
the Pickle factory where I spend my life nights 
packing pickles to finance my rise to a good job and 
clean clothes. ..some kind of job elevating to the 
human existance... uplifting, uplifting something other 
than pickle jars. ..some job where I can use my in- 
tellect. liberalism. English majorism. But I 
pack pickles all night. 

Bob, next to me in the line, has a degree in 
Philosophy and our bossman has one of those wor- 
thless things that say history on it. They helped the 
economy by staying out of the job market and they 
helped themselves stay out of Vietnam, but a $1.65 per 
hour ain't intellectual. 

OKAY, so maybe we don't all get to be the in- 
tellectual elite, .what about a job working with your 
hands? Like an electrician or car- 
penter. ..pressman. .so your hands are dirty you have a 
skill. Well, you go down to the job-getting-place with 
your beard and see what there is. On the way down one

Metawampe, Free University Rile Texas Town 

By Robert C. Northshield 
El Passo Bureau Chief, 
Turley Dispatch News 

EL PASSO — Summer comes early to this part of Texas, 
as the spiders and fruit flies gently spin around the slowly- 
moving fans in the dry and dusty saloons. Life for the 200,000 
inhabitants slows down. It is a calm summer here in the 

But beneath the surface tranquility here in Johnson 
Country deepseated anxiety grips the towns folk. Memories 
of the past haunt a tribe of nomadic hippies, camping in the 
Texas Hills for the Summer. 

They rode in a month ago, speeding down the quiet streets 
in that brightly colored Ford Van. "Roadarte," they called 
themselves, and they .spoke of a Free University they had 
come from. 

"Back home we're free," the One Called Nay said. "No 
one hassles us, we're happy and everyone else is happy. 
Back home in Free University land, even straight people 
respect us." 

But this was strange talk for Texas, and the Tribe from the 
Free University experienced a number of what their 
members termed "Bad Vibes" for a good part of their first 
days here. 

"But Man, we changed that right off," Nay says. "It was 
just a matter of telling the cats out here all about our culture 
and explaining how we live. Like, once they heard about our 
lives, man, they were converted." 

And, according to Texans in the area, the tale which did 
the most to convert the area residents, was Nay's ex- 
plaination of his Tribe's guiding force, the Spirit of 

A great dead Indian, Charles L. Metawampe was 
orij^inally a Botany instructor at the University of 
Massachusetts at Amherst. Shunned by a conservative 
Provost who, legend says, was only interested in moving 
into a new home on a hill, the Indian Mystic was fired. 

Hut a number of students knew of the wisdom of the Great 
One (as he was known), and convinced a local newspaper, 
the Daily (.'oliegian, to allow Metawampe to write a fortune 
telling column once a week during the Buffalo season (Fall). 

The Great One wrote of football games, and became 
known as Metawampe's Football Pix, until a new printer 
and new headlines changed him to Metawampe's Picks." 
But the Tribe of Nay knew the Great One's writings, and 
modeled their lives around the Great One's logic. 

Nay explained, "We think like Metawampe, act like 
Metawampe and have the same goals in life as Metawampe. 
We are Metawampe in soul and spirit." 

But even the Great One's purest disciple had initial 
communication problems with the natives. 

"When we first met Nay, we thought he was plum loco. We 
thought he was on the weed." 

Nay says, "So that was our challenge: to convert the 
heathen Texas ways of the El Passoites to the teachings of 

They l>egan with what the residents at first called "Free 
University Whore Houses." 

But members of Nay's Tribe called them "hospitality 
tents," where local residents could sample the finer aspects 
of our culture. It gave them a chance to try some of the 
Great One's teachings out with several female members of 
the Tribe. 

Despite some initial opposition by local church groups, 
this primary "get to know each other" session worked out 
well for the Free U kids. 

Social Chairman Mark Rosoff reports, "We developed a 
70% come back trend. Some nights, expecially dull weekend 
nights, we had waiting lines." 

Phase two of the Nay plan called for converting the 
natives to what locals called, "The Weed." Commonly 
called "marijuana" by members of the Tribe, "Grass" (as 
it is also known) was presented to the townsfolk in thinly 
rolled cigarette-like objects called "joints." They are 
sucked, inhaled, and then exhaled. The resulting stupor-like 
reaction is the desirous outcome of the experience, ac- 
cording to the Free U'ers. 

The Texans exposed to this way of the Cult of Metawampe 
soon began moving in with the Tribe members, complaining 
only that they were forced to eat bland and tasteless foods 
which were proclaimed by Tribe members as being 

Once a member of the El Passo residents took to "blowing 
joints," the Tribe members convinced them to forego the 
pleasures of wearing clothes without holes, and challenged 
them to sacrifice this confort for the faded blue devotion to 
the Great One which marked the Trbe's dress. 

Presently, about half of Greater El Passo is converted to 
Nay's Tribe and to the way of Metawampe. This, local of- 
ficials say, is tolerable. But State politicians are concerned 
over reports that Nay is sending for reinforcements. 

"We can take this much," F. Leo Shanor, assistant to the 
County Commissioner said, "But if any more of 'em ride into 
this County, we're prepared to stop "em." 

Items in the Free University newsletter, "The Pierpont," 
have indicated that a group of Metawampe Believers left 
Amherst last week and are due at the Texas border in 
several days. 

They include the notorious Peace Soldier, Gil Sabin, who 
reportedly frightened a farm community in Ohio by mar- 
ching through a farmer's corn field, singing, "Give Peace A 
Chance." Sabin, carrying a white poster with the red letters, 
"U.S. out of Asia Now," wore a heavy brass Piece Symbol 
around his neck. Local officials believe this conceals a 
weapon which Sabin intends to use on local residents. 

County officials are rumored to be looking for a gun 
fighter to take on Sabin before he reaches El Passo. 

A telephone operator in nearby Lubbock said yesterday 
she heard Shanor calling Tex Elters to defend the property 
of El Passo citizens. 

Shanor, however, would not comment on this. 

Meanwhile, back in the Free University camp site, 
directly across from the El Passo sewerage processing 
plant. Nay is reported to be planning a counter-attack. 

Sources close to the freak say he has called on a personal 
friend of the Indian, Bob Coldwell, to contact Shanor's office 
in an effort to prevent Sabin's entry into Texas. 

While all of this is going on, the residents of this Texas 
community have found their normally peaceful summer 
lives shaken. And, as the children of Metawampe camp on 
their land, they find themselves singing that old football 
picks favorite, "Trojans help to stem the flow... "

Soft, Easy Music 

It strikes me as interesting, but 
hardly surprising that we are 
witnessing a rash of soft and easy 
music. The days of the tough, 
biting and often times harsh 
sounds which came from such 
groups as "The Who" and "The 
Grateful Dead" although not quite 
vanishing from sight are slowly 
disappearing from existence. This 
can only be indicative of the style 
and pace of living today. 

Artists who seem to be taking up 
the banner of hving for this 
generation are poets with a talent 
for writing about the "good" 
things. They seem intent upon 
accentuating the positive, 
something which was missing from 
the "lell it like it is" political artist 
of the past. 

Peter Allen in his album "Peter 
Allen" is a fine example of the 
imaginative simple artist that is

coming on the scene. 

Throughout the album the 
listener finds himself refreshingly 
entertained with finely timed 
arrangements enhanced with the 
intense and rich voice of Peter 
Allen. The lyrics of the album are 
teeming with poetical images 
which are not quite as much a 
flight of fantasy as Dylan and more 
down to earth than say Paul Siebel. 

The striking quality of Peter 
Allen's album is the interest and 
confidence that he takes in all his

Patterson Appointed Boyden Prof, 
Former Hampshire College President 

Boston, Mass. -Franklin Patterson, chairman of the 
board and former president of Hampshire College, 
was appointed to the first university-wide 
professorship of UMass, President Wood announced 
yesterday following the UMass Board Of Trustees 

As Frank L. Boyden Professor at the University, Dr. 
Patterson will explore the pressing issues concerning 
the substance and organization of higher education, 
especially in the area of cooperation among private 
and public institutions. His appointment is effective 
September 1. 

In making the announcement. President Wood said: 
"Frank Patterson's service at Hampshire College and 
in the Five College program (Amherst, Hampshire, 
Mount Holyoke, Smith, UMass), uniquely qualifies 
him for this new professorship, which will have among 
its charges the exploration of ways and means for 

improving the collaboration among public and private 
institutions of higher education. With the rapid growth 
at the University of Massachusetts, the professorship 
will also focus on the function of the University, and 
the manner in which it can respond more effectively to 
the needs of the state and its communities." 

On June 12, Dr. Patterson was named chairman of 
the Hampshire College Board of Trustees and founder 
president, effective July 1. He will continue to par- 
ticipate energetically in the policy leadership of the 
college, and in the development of its educational 
programs and financial resources. 

Prof. Patterson was appointed Hampshire's first 
president in 1966. Prior to that, he was director of the 
Lincoln-Filene Center for Citizenship and Public 
Affairs at Tufts University. He is a Benjamin Franklin 
Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. 


Study To Improve Public Schools Launched 

Boston, Mass.- A major study to 
improve the public school system 
in the Commonwealth through 
better administration was an- 
nounced this week by the 
Massachusetts Advisory Council 
on Education and UMass. 

The one-year undertaking-"A 
study of the governance of public 
schools in Massachusetts in the 
I970's "- began yesterday. 

The study results from the in- 
creasing pressures on the top 
administrators and governors of 
Miissachusetts schools-from 
student activism and the demand 
of teachers for a share in school 
governance, and from concerned 
citizens who, reacting to weakness 
in schools, stresses in society and 
rapidly rising costs. Veteran 
school administrators and school 
committee members agree that 
the o')tions .per to thom in 
decidiii policy and administration 
have declined markedly in the last 
20 years. 

Dr. William C. Gaige, director of 
research at MACE, in noting this 

change observed that, "...this 
breakdown in the effectiveness of 
the governance of our schools at 
the top, where the desires and 
resources of the citizens are 
translated into educational policies 
and programs, has resulted in the 
drifting of our schools and the 
program. Millions of the billions of 
dollars will be wasted, children 
and others will be shortchanged 
and society further frustrated. The 
anachronisms in our system of 
governance and communications 
must be replaced by new 
relationships, technology and ways 
of communicating." 

The study will bring specialists 
and local school administrators 
and school committees together in 
an effort to develop new 
procedures, laws, communication 
techniques, and organization of 
rules and relationships. 

Planned and sponsored by the 
Massachusetts Advisory Council 
on Education, the study will be 
conducted under the auspices of 
ihe University of Massachusetts. 

Aiding in the planning were the 
Massachusetts School Committee 
Association and the Massachusetts 
Superintendents Association, both 
of which will participate fully in 
the effort. The Massachusetts 
League of Cities and Towns has 
also pledged special collaboration. 

The study director is Dr. Paul W. 
('ook, economist and director of the 
Analytical Studies Group at M.I.T. 

Dr. Paul F. Ross, industrial 
psych3logist and education 
management specialist, is 
associate director. 

Study coordinator for UMass is 
Prof. Maurice Donahue, former 
Senate President and present 
director of the UMass Institute of 
Governmental Service. 

UMass President Wood assisted 
in the planning and will serve as 
the principal advisor to the study. 

Preliminary field work will aid 
in structuring questionnaires and 
interviews to recognize the dif- 
ference among the various'school 
systems and communities. 
Questionnaires will be sent to 

superintendents, school boards, 
committeemen, civic officials, and 
others concerned with education. 
By the end of 1971, the study 
committee will have compiled all 

the data, and presented the 
problems and opportunities to the 
present systems. The emphasis 
will shift then to the search for a 


Court Ups UMass 
Land Evaluation 

A five-year land valuation appeal from Amherst has been settled out-of- 
court raising the valuation of the 780 acres of land in the town occupied by 
the University of Massachusetts from $792,000 to $3.35 million. 

The Supreme Judicial Court upheld local Assessors and remanded the 
case to the Appellate Tax Board. That board found for the town and 
determined the fair cash value of all state-owned land in Amherst used 
for UMass as of Jan. 1, 1967 to be $3.35 million. 

Town Manager Allen Torrey said the agreement will result in $147,000 
additional state revenue this year, plus payments for 1967 through 1970 of 

Earlier this year Torrey had estimated a tax increase of $3.35 was 
possible. He said today that the added revenue from the state would alter 
that situation, although how much of a change it might make was not 
certain yet. 

However, with an assessed valuation of$135 million, the town raises 
$135,000 with each dollar on the tax rate. The $147,000 from the state then 
could amount to more than a dollar off the estimated increase.

"Do Your Own Thing' 

A new program is in the process of being instituted in the 
Summer Residence Halls which affords faculty members 
and graduate students an opportunity to do some ex- 
perimentation and supplement their own incomes. The 
project is being funded by the offices of the Vice- 
Chancellor for Academic Affairs Robert Gluckstern, and 
Summer School Director William Venman. 

One spokesman claimed that there would be "an ample 
supply of money available" for positions such as those of 
faculty fellow, seminar leader, mini-course instructor in 
addition to other possible avenues of exploration. All 
selections are to be made by a student-faculty committee 
and the financial compensation will be commensurate 
with the degree of involvement. If interested one should

The American Shakers 

At this time of renewed 
experiments with com- 
munal ways of living, Henri 
Desroche's socio- 

theological study of the 
Shaker style of life- 
previously available only in 
French-should be of par- 
ticular interest. 

Desroche fits Shakerism 
into the general context of 
other Protestant and social 
movements of the 
nineteenth century. He 
views it as being one of the 
closing chapters in the 
history of sectarian 
Christianity while also 
representing one of the first 
in the prehistory of modern 
socialism, as a hinge bet-

ficials say, and it is likely the rate 
will be set next week. 

David E. McLean, chairman of 
the State Appellate Tax Board said 
the settlement would cost the state 
several million dollars. 

"It's a very far reaching decision 
that's going to run into some 
money," McLean said. "If every 
city and town in the com- 
monwealth does the same thing, 
God save the Commonwealth." 

Amherst originally appealed to 
the tax board in 1967 and the board 
ruled in 1968 that the value of 
university land should be raised to 

Amherst felt this was not 
enough, and after a vote of the 1968 
town meeting appealed to the 
Supreme Court. 

The value of the land was in- 
creased from $1,700 an acre to 
$4,300 an acre, resulting in the $3.35 
million figure for the university's 
780 acres. 

The agreement was reached 
June 18. 

Under state statute, the value of 
state-owned land must be 
reassessed every five years. In 
Amherst's case, this means that 
the latest ruling will be in effect for 
only one year after the settlement. 
The town can then appeal the 
valuation of the rapidly expanding

Bored By Board 

On June 30, 1971, at 2:25 p.m. in an elegantly 
shabby fourth floor conference room of Boston's 
Statler Hilton Hotel, the University of 
Massachusetts Board of Trustees convened for their 
June meeting. Fifteen minutes later, at 2:40 p.m., 
the meeting adjourned, thus setting a new record 
for longevity, or rather lack thereof, of a UMass. 
Board of Trustees meeting. 

As may be surmised from the length of the 
meeting, nothing of vital import transpired. There 
were the usual P.R. type announcements which, as 
usual, sounded strangely as if they had been 
rehearsed and canned for public consumption. Dr. 
Robert Hoopes, former Dean of the Faculty at 
UMass Boston, was named as an Associate Provost 
at UMass Amherst. There is finally a Dean for each 
division in the College of Arts and Sciences with the 
appointment of Dr. Mac V. Edds, a biologist from 
Brown University, as Dean of the division of 
Mathematics and Natural Sciences at Amherst. 
Franklin Patterson, Chairman of the Board of 
Trustees and former President of Hampshire 
College was given a professorship, the word being 
that he will be President Wood's academic con- 

sultant and a close facsimile of a Vice-President for 
Academic Affairs. 

The Board met behind closed doors from 11 a.m. 
{ after the adjournment of the Student Activities 
Committee meeting at which time discussion 
centered around the counseling system at both 
Amherst and Boston and the special problems of 
minority students attending the University) until 
the fconvening of the public meeting at 2:25 p.m. 
During this three-hour period the Board heard from 
Peter Edelman and several members of the 
Committee on the Future University and then 
discussed what they had heard. 

The new student trustee from UMass didn't show, 
not that it really mattered, and all told it was an 
uneventful afternoon. Upon being informed that the 
Board had set a new record for brevity, Larry 
Harmon, assistant to the Secretary of the 
University was heard to quip "I guess the Board 
really did its homework." 

What the Board of Trustees is, what it does, and 
how its "homework" is done will be the subject of an 
upcoming, indepth study to appear in these pages. 

Glenn Elters is a former member of the Board of Trustees. (MDC photo.) 

To The Editor.... 

Perhaps someone reading your 
paper could explain to me why the 
Campus Center, paid for I might 
remind you out of student funds, 
accepts only Diners Club, 
American Express, and Carte 
Blanche credit cards. All these 
cards have minimum income 

requirements thus rendering them 
inaccessible to students. The Top 
of the Campus could, and should, 
accept Bankamericard (the most 
widely used credit card) and 
Master Charge, neither of which 
have minimum income 

regulations. It would be a nice 
gesture if the management of the 

Campus Center could throw the 
students a tid-bit like this now and 
then. After all, we were the ones 
who were ripped-off for $22 million 
for the Marcel Breuer Memorial to 
the American Concrete

Performers, Audience 
Enjoy The Drunkard 

By Linda Gaudette 

It's a rare and to be treasured 
production when both the per- 
formers and audience enjoy 
themselves. The Drunkard (or 
fallen saved) performed by the 
Masque Theater Ensemble can 
claim just such a distinction. 

Upon entering the performance 
one is immediately impressed by 
the extremely imaginative set and 
backdrop which, although of 
somewhat modern design is very 

a tear to the eye of even the most 
hardened theater goer. 

Praise is also worthy of Katy 
Scot as Julia the hero's young 
daughter whose performance 
verged on the professional. 
Stephanie Schloss as Agnes, a 
crazed young woman, was handled 
with tremendous sensitivity and 

Several of the scenes in the play 
were master pieces of comedy 

effective in creating the proper 
atmosphere for this very antique 
theatrical representation. The 
addition of a honky tonk piano 
player, Ron Milrose, amply places 
you in the right frame of mind for 
some 'Vood ol' time dramer". 

When first performed in 
Amherst in 1820, the play was 
received as a serious theatrical 
production. As handled by its 
director William Menzes and in 
light of today's life style it is more 
comic exaggerate. 

Performers who help keep the 
lively pace and vibrant action are 
James Tibbetts as Edward Mid- 
dleton, the unfortunate hero fallen 
prey to the evils of alcohol who is 
indeed worthy of the necessary 
cheers and applause and Steven 
DriscoU as the slimy, treacherous 
villain who strongly and 
imaginatively portrays the 
dastardly Mr. Cribbs. 

Special note should also be taken 
of Judy Freedman, as Mary, 
Edward Middleton's sweet and 
ever faithful young wife, whose 
preformance cannot help but bring 

handled in the style which ranks 
with the greatest. Particularly 
funny was the gossiping scene with 
Honest William Dowton and the 
two farmers played by David 
Hopcroft, Paul Wonsek, Jr. and 
Dan Murphy, respectively. The 
final chase scene with the entire 
cast in hot pursuit of the villain Mr. 
Cribbs was truly reminiscent of the 
great silent films. 

Sets are designed by Paul 
Wonsek Jr., costumes by Mary 
Ann Tolka and lights by Douglas

Undelicate Balance 

By Martin Calabrese 

There are thirty-six seats in the Studio Theatre. Delicate Balance 
will have nine performances. (July 1,2,3,8,9,10,15,16,17). Three- 
hundred-twenty-four people will be able to see it. Make sure you are 
one of those who will see it. 

Edward Albee has written a consistent, incisive and often times 
brilliant play that investigates specifically the relationships of all 
man. The story is about an anonymous family: a self-possessed 
wife, an unpossessed husband, a lush sister-in-law, and a four time 
amputee daughter (four times divorced) whose relationships are 
being maintained by the mother in a delicate balance. The juggling 
act is upset when the family is visited by their two best friends, a 
husband and wife, who have just experienced an unknown terror. 
The terror is infectious. The contagion spreads, the delicate 
balance so tirelessly worked at by the mother is shattered. 

The production directed by Marya Bednerik is uneven. It sup- 
ports the strengths of the play; a keen sense of language, powerful 
metaphors, and sharp observations into human experience, but 
little is done to over come its weaknesses; the vagueness of an 
intellectual parlour game and the constant feeling that the author is 
telling us that there is more to the play than meets the eye. 

The first act is slow, almost excruciating. It lacks intensity, vigor 
and direction. It makes a monotone of the natural cachophony of 
life. Little is done to clarify the ambiguity of who these people are 
and what they are doing. Albee has a knack for writing about 
people who talk about doing things, but in this play it is not until the 
second act that they start doing something. It breaks the tedium of 
the first act and establishes the promise that the characters have 
made to each other, to themselves, to the audience to strip to the 
bare necessity of survival. The promise is fulfilled in the third act, 
a promise like the sun that illuminates the darkened lives of these 
people for an instant and then sets again. And it is all the brilliance 
and intensity of that one glimpse that is overwhelming and com- 
pletely devastating-Emptying the theatre of any rumblings of 
humanity, forcing us to examine our own delicate balance. 

The play is long and requires a great deal of pure strength to 
maintain any acceptable level of performance. Elizabeth Weiss, as 
Agnes, is a fine sensitive performer who after a slow stiff start is 
superb in the closing act. Gary C. Hopper, Tobias, is the only one of 
the troop who is consistently powerful in his understanding of the 
subtleties of his character. Marcia Whitney, Glenna Fickert, Tom 
Leek and Linda Musliwy give uneven yet at times finely drawn 


The set by Jeff A. Fialay is impressive in its richness of style 
creating an excellent environment that functionally serves the 
demands of the play and the Studio Theatre. His costumes, though, 
lack style not achieving any individuality of character. Lighting by 
Nicholas Scott successfully creates the obscure, vague feeling that 
they play requires. ^

Knock Quietly, There May Be Someone Meditating 

By Paul A. Wilson 

A sight which is becoming increasingly more common as 
one wanders about the campus is that of a small group of 
people (obviously strangers to the University), generaUy 
conservatively dressed, and wearing name tags which 
identify them as members of one or another of the growmg 
number of conferences and symposia using UMass as the 
site for their meetings. An early estimate from the Division 
of Continuing Education, the University department which 
plans and coordinates these conferences, in fact, has placed 
at around 20,000 the number of people who will be spending 
varying lengths of time with us here this summer. 

Of these twenty thousand conferees, surely the largest, 
and unquestionably the most intriguing group is the 
Students International Meditation Society (SIMS) con- 
tingent which is on campus now and which will remain here 
for the better part of a month. No one I spoke to seemed to 
know exactly how many SIMS people were here right now or 
how many more would be coming during the four weeks that 
the course will last. Currently, however, there are over one 
thousand transcendental meditators at the University, and 
more are expected to register during the next few weeks. 
You can generally spot these people by the little plastic 
name tags bearing their pictures which they wear on 
various points of their persons, but that may well be the only 
way; these conferees decidedly do not fit the stereotype of 
the conservatively dressed, pillar-of-society types usually 
here on convention. The majority of the SIMS group is 
young, with most of its members well under thirty, and some 
who don't appear to be old enough to have qualified for their 
drivers' licenses. 

The SIMS course is essentially a training session for 
teachers of transcendental meditation (referred to by the 
initiates as TM), and it is led by no less a personage than the 
spiritual leader of the movement, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi 
himself. Maharishi and two other men who are also in 
Amherst-reunited for the first time in many years-were the 
disciples of a gentleman called Guru Dev, the Maharishi 
studying with him in India for some 13 years, who is sort of 
the patron saint of the transcendental meditation 
movement. The teachings of transcendental meditation are 
actually very ancient, dating back to India some 4,000 years 
ago. For several obscure reasons, among which is said to be 
astonishing simplicity discipline, this form of meditation fell 
into disuse and consequently into obscurity. The teachings 
remained virtually unknown for many years until Guru Dev 
rediscovered them and taught them to his disciples, and in 
1958 were brought out of India by Maharishi (which, in- 
cidentally, means great teacher or holy sage or some per- 
mutation thereof). 

For those of us who are not initiates of transcendental 
meditation, the movement is slightly mysterious; we have 
many nebulous ideas about meditation per se, but tran- 
scendental meditation, that conjures up images of Zen or 
Hindu monks sitting crosslegged contemplating their navels 
somehow superimposed over visions of Ralph Waldo 
Emerson, John Lennon and the other three men late of the 
Beatles, and a LIFE magazine cover photograph of Mia 
Farrow and Maharishi looking like they had been 
decapitated and their heads left to rest on a bed of bilious 
flowers. Exactly what TM is all about, what it claims to do 
for people, and how this explains the skyrocketing growth of 
the movement are, for outsiders like myself, unknown 

It is not difficult for anyone who is interested in what 
transcendental meditation is all about to get information- 
provided that he proceeds in the right way. SIMS has its 
offices on the 19th floor of J.Q.A. in Southwest; this is where 
the internal management of the course is located and is also 
where one goes to look for Casey Coleman, who is, I'm told. 

in charge of public relations for the group. Don't go there. 
The office staff is busy, Coleman is hard to find (I'm still 
looking), and nobody else will commit himself to anything; I 
couldn't even get them to give me one of the self-descriptive 
pamphlets listing the locations of the SIMS offices and 
giving a little propaganda about the movement, let alone a 
news release or some questions answered. "You might find 
him in his room," I was told, "but knock quietly, there may 
be someone meditating." It seems to me somehow in- 
congruous that such an efficient (or inefficient as you 
prefer) bureaucracy should grow up around a movement 
which claims to provide liberation of the spirit and other 
related summae bonae as does transcendental meditation. 

SIMS does sponsor introductory lectures to the TM 
discipline, however, they're often held more than ©nee a 
week; the next is scheduled for Wednesday, July 7 at 8 p.m. 
in the Campus Center. There are plenty of announcements 
about times and locations of the others. This, of course, is 
the formal way to be introduced to transcendental 
meditation. A much better way to learn about the movement 
is to simply stop one of the meditators you see around 
campus and ask him to tell you about TM. These people are 
sincerely interested in what they are doing and welcome the 
chance to proselytize a little bit; they, think that they've got 
a really good product and this is a good way to get another 
soul into the fold. 

What they say about transcendental meditation, 
moreover, really does sound good. It seems to be something 
on the order of a universal panacea-better than Geritol, 
Serutan, Compoz. Tums, and Carter's Little Liver Pills 
combined. TM is said to unknot your nerves, straighten you 
out, slow down your metabolic rate, rest your mind and 
body, put you in Tune With Things, and, if you keep at it Ipng 
enough, increase the performance capacity of your mind. 

Maharishi. I am told, functions at 100% mental potential, 
this is in comparison with the eight or nine percent with 
which the rest of us wander along. Maharishi, who holds a 
degree in physics, only needs to sleep about an hour per 
night, the rest of the time he can devote to his teaching and 

TM is vastly different from other forms of meditation, and 
it is not an elaborate and confusing Indian religion or 
technique. As I understand it, by using a mantra, some 
sound with no meaning, meditation is initiated. This is the 
vehicle which one may use to transcend thought, to proceed 
to finer and finer levels of mental activity. These states of 
psychic action penetrate the most subtle levels of thought 
and put one in touch with our internal source of energy and 
intelligence; Being, Nirvana, or whatever you want to call 
it. This is the fundamental field of life. A fourth level of 
consciousness is induced and by contacting the source of 
thought all other activities are argumented; you get 
healthier, more rational, and so forth. 

It all seems a bit too much to believe, but there is some 
legitimate scientific documentation. A gentleman named 
Robert Keefe Wallace at Harvard Medical School has 
published his findings on the physiological effects of tran- 
scendental meditation and the researcn is there to read- 
electroencephlograms, metabolic charts, and everything 
else. TM is even being used as post and preoperative 
therapy for heart patients at Harvard. Nothing, of course, is 
proved beyond question, but some startling information has 
been revealed by these researchers. 

The clincher, however, is yet to come. It is claimed that 
fifteen or twenty minutes of meditation provides an in- 
dividual with better rest than does a full night's sleep. This 
and all the other effects of TM, moreover, begin upon one's 
first meditation. Not only do they say it works, but it works 
the first time. 

There is not, furthermore, a great deal involved in 
becoming initiated into the discipline of transcendental 
meditation. One must attend two introductory lectures on 
TM. and then have four days (at one hour per day) of per- 
sonalized instruction. This individual instruction is the most 
important part of the training. The technique of TM must be 
taught on a one-to-one basis, it is very simple to learn, but it 
is done with just you and the teacher. You are taught to 
encourage the thoughts which come during meditation and 
how to understand their contents, and eventually are sent off 
for the first meditation. Because SIMS is a non-profit 
organization, there is an initiation contribution of thirty-five 
bucks; they can't charge a fee. 

The only other prerequisite to initiation is a mildly ironic 
comment about the sub-culture which - at least in the States- 
makes up a good part of the TM movement. Every potential 
initiate is told to stay straight for 15 days preceeding his 
initiate to meditation. The Maharishi has found that traces 
of dope stay in the system for that length of time and if they 
are present, can interfere with meditation. Once you start 
meditating, furthermore, the need for drugs (whatever that 
may be) is no longer present, there is often no longer any 
desire to turn on. 

When the four week SB! S course is concluded, a two week 
international symposium on transcendental meditation will 
convene. When it does, there should be some interesting 
people on campus discussing the various aspects of TM. I 
suspect that it will be something to watch for. Before then, 
however, Maharishi will be making a personal appearance 
on July 11 to speak on transcendental meditation; it's not 
often that the opportunity arises to see a man who is con- 
sidered a saint during his own lifetime, one who is in direct 
touch with the laws of nature, and who taught Mia Farrow 
and the Beatles. It should be interesting.

The Common Interest 

By Tom Wicker 

WASHINGTON In publishing the highly classified "Pentagon 
Papers," wasn't The New York Times setting itself up to judge 
the national interest? What gave The Times either the right or 
the standing to make such a judgment? And anyway, isn't the 
national interest properly the Government's to define? 

That, roughly, is the line of argument most frequently ad- 
vanced by those who question The Times' decision to print these 
important documents. 

This argument rests on two assumptions-that "national in- 
terest" is primarily a matter of "national security," and that 
only the most skilled, experienced and informed Government 
officials know anything about it. Both are false. 

In the latter case, the truth is that most legitimate "secrets" 
are not involved, technical, specialized matters-arcane 
weaponry details, for instance. Instead, they are policy and 
procedural questions on which secrecy must be temporarily 
imposed to give the Government some necessary freedom of 

It was such questions of what to do and how to do it that the 
Johnson Administration was secretly debating in 1964 and 1965, 
as the situation deteriorated in Vietnam. The partial 
documentary record of that debate, and its evident consequences 
in the years since, is proof enough that even the most skilled and 
experienced Government officials can sadly miscalculate the 
"national interest." 

Nor IS it necessarily true that the Government has more and 
better information than anyone else. Subordinates reporting to 
their chiefs are always under pressure to report greater 
achievements than exist; officials who have shaped a policy have 
an interest in justifying it, no matter what the actual results; and 
preconceived policy convictions are likely tv. be held despite 
contrary facts. Sometimes the best available information can be 
ignored; the Pentagon Papers show that the C.I. A. repeatedly 
warned against overcommitment in Vietnam, and when a long- 
experienced State Department official advocated withdrawal 
from what he saw as the hopeless situation in that country in 1963, 
Secretary Rusk is said to have insisted that it was a basic 
premise of American policy not to pull out of Vietnam until the 
war was won. What good is even precise information in the face 
of such fixed attitudes? 

Moreover, governments always have their own political self- 
interest to consider as they weigh questions of national interest. 
High officials' ability to discuss and decide in secrecy tends to 
isolate them from disinterested criticism and fresh insights. The 
institutional, impersonal nature of national power is likely to 
diminish the sense of personal responsibility; members of the 
National Security Council do not personally drop napalm on 

A brilliant editorial in the Washington Post has pointed out that 
even the bureaucratic language disclosed in the Pentagon 
Papers -the repetitive jargon of "scenario" and "option" and 
orchestration" and "crescendo" and "signal" and "limited 
action" was so much "in flight from and in defense against 
reality" that those who spoke and wrote it need never have 
acknowledged its meaning in an actual world of falling bombs 
and scorched earth and terrified children. 

As for the assumption that "national interest" and "national 
security" are somehow synonymous, it can be justified, if at all, 
only in some dark hour of national crisis, when survival is at 
stake. At any other time, "national security" can be only one 
important part of a democracy's "national interest" -which 
might be better understood as what it really is, the "common 

If, for example, the ultimate check on government is the 
people's right to vote, the exercise of it and the outcome of 
elections depend heavily upon how much the people khow, and 
how accurate their knowledge is. Therefore, the press acts as 
much on behalf of the people in trying to inform them about what 
government is doing, and why, and how well It works, as 
government does in trying to manage the people's affairs and 
protect tneir security. 

That is why The Times had not only the right but the duty to 
judge whether the national interest required it to print the 
Pentagon Papers when they came to hand. If The Times -or any 
news organization in the same circumstances had no such right, 
then only the Government could judge the common interest, even 
on the question of what the people should know about the 

'^ In that case, the Government need never fear public scrutiny 
nor account for its actions. Honest men may conclude that The 
Times judged incorrectly, that "national security" would have 
been better served by keeping the Pentagon Papers secret. But if 
so, the damage done by this bad judgement is minor compared to 
the blow that ^ould have been struck against the "common in 
terest" had The Times abdicated its- right to judge, without 
Government direction, what that interest is.

The University Goes On? 

1 don't claim to 

be the expert on University student government and places students and faculty 

Governance, but, as the former President of the 
Student Senate and as a member of the now defunct 
Commission on Campus Governance I am com- 
paratively well versed in the subject. This article 
represents the first of a trilogy on the history of the 
debate which centered on the issue of campus 
governance this past year. The first installment 
examines the need for change and the early initiatives 
taken by the Student Senate and the actions of 
Chancellor Oswald Tippo; the second shall explain the 
philosophy of a University Senate and will report the 
context of the deliberations within the Commission on 
Campus Governance; the third shall deal with a post 
mortem on the report of the Joint Commission on 
Campus Governance. 

To suggest that change in the governance structure 
at this campus is needed is self-evident to anyone wiio 
has ever had the thrill of attending a Faculty Senate 
meeting, and to most of those who have dropped in at 
one of the meetings of the Student Senate. The system 
breaks down for many reasons, but the most out- 
standing are: the total lack of coordination between 
faculty and student governing bodies on campus; the 
actual impotence of the Student Senate; the real 
power of the Faculty Senate which is exercised in an 
uninformed and truly irresponsible manner, and; the 
lack of any kind of effective influence wielded by 
students within the Faculty Senate which claims to 
have such authoritarian control over student's lives at 
this University. 

The present structure allows for a tri-partite form of 
governance with a Faculty Senate, Student Senate, 
and a Graduate Student Senate. Essentially the two 
student senates control only their own finances with 
any degree of autonomy. Everything else either 
student senate acts upon is either in the form of a 
recommendation to some administrative officer or 
must be forwarded to the Faculty Senate for con- 
sideration. This is an untenable situation for students 
and smacks of elitist paternalism. The faculty position 
is better but certainly less than ideal, faculty do, for 
the most part, have much more authority about their 
own circumstances and about the entire academic 
enterprise, but even their actions are essentially 
advisory to the Chancellor and the Board of Trustees. 
The inequity of this structure is clearly the strangle- 
hold which faculty have over students in the 
legislative process. For any bill to have extensive 
debate on the floor of the Student Senate with only 
minimal student input is a corrupt structure. The 
knowledge that this is the standard procedure is 

in adversary positions automatically. 

A brief examination of the utter failure of students 
to affect major academic reform is truly a cause for 
alarm and concern about the sensitivity of the present 
system. The formulation and passage by the Student 
Senate of an omnibus package on academic reform in 
1969 (Education for Living) and the subsequent lack of 
enthusiasm within the faculty and Faculty Senate 
which led to a "head in the sand" attitude of not even 
considering the document is a damnable, non-action 
by the Faculty Senate which speaks to my point. 
Another instance of the unwillingness, or at least 
reluctance unless placed under irresistable force, to 
deal with pressing campus (albeit student) issues was 
the near adjournment of the Faculty Senate before 
debate on the advisability of in some way taking a 
stand on the nation-wide student strike during May of 

Here, it should be pointed out, the Student Senate is 
not blameless either. Many students rightfully feel 
that the Student Senate spends an inordinate amount 
of time passing on minor financial bills while it 
neglects the more difficult and often more important 
issues of the day. The fact is that in many ways the 
Student Senate has realistically reacted to its own 
position of relative powerlessness by spending much 
time on those issues over which it does have a good 
deal of authority, such as financial matters. This in no 
way excuses the Student Senate from its inability to 
face up to the fact that it must at some point refute the 
structure which has been forced upon it and deal ef- 
fectively with a corrupt system and an archaic faculty 
oligarchy. The Student Senate had nearly accepted, de 
facto, this power relationship until three years ago. 

Recognizing, finally, the utterly indefensible 
second-class citizenship which students were forced 
into both as individuals and legislatively, the Student 
Senate began insisting upon an inquiry into alternate 
forms of governance and possible cooperation bet- 
ween the now existent Student Senate and the Faculty 
Senate. Several commissions were established and all 
eventually failed to reach any effective conclusions, 
save that the present structure was far from ideal. On 
the instance of his speech before the combined 
Faculty, Student, and Graduate Student Senates after 
his being named Chancellor in March 1970, Dr. Oswald 
Tippo placed a high priority on restudying governance 
by pledging to appoint yet another commission on 
campus governance. This was the first mention of 
what was to become the Joint Commission on Campus 
Governance which shall be discussed in the next in- 

frustrating for those of us who have been involved in stallment.

Delicate Balance... 

How It Is Maintained 

Pulitzer Prize winner first 
produced in 1966 investigates the 
varying relationships that exist 
between friends and within family 
structure. Harold Clurman claims 
that Edward Albee's A DELICATE 
BALANCE is superior to his more 
sensational WHO'S AFRAID OF 
VIRIGINIA WOLF? and in this 
play Albee does capture our at- 
tention with his careful dramatic 
structuring of the precarious 
equilibrium of human relation- 
ships. The play examines what 
happens when the balance is upset 
or destroyed, and how that balance 
is maintained. 

The characters in A DELICATE 
BALANCE live with the agony and 

those customs, beliefs and laws 
which mirror our own. Marriage, 
home, family and togetherness are 
smug foundations on which we 
proudly build the American way of 
life. However, in the absence of 
illusions and in the face of truthful 
confrontations it finally crumbles. 

In an interview with Michael 
Rutenberg, Albee said the point of 
the play is that. .."we lose. ..we 
develop a kind of arthritis of the 
mind, of the morality, and change 
becomes impossible finally." 

Direction is by Marya Bednerik; 
scenic and custom design by Jeff 
Fiala; and lighting by Nicholas 
Scott, members of the University 
Theater faculty.

Arts-Crafts Offered 

Arts and Crafts workshops are being offered to a limited number of 
students. There are three courses, each meets one afternoon a week: 
Sculpture, a basic approach ranging from clay to Mexican paper mache; 
Textiles and weaving, including crocheted sculpture, woven belts, and 
applique fashions; and drawing and painting, emphasizing new ideas 
today in art and new materials, but also including traditional approaches, 
with individual criticism of work. 

There is no fee for the course. Some materials will be provided, but 
students will have to purchase materials of their own choice. Scheduling 
is Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, and since class size is 
limited places will be reserved on a sign-up first-come basis. Sign-up 
sheets are posted at the Student Activities Office desk on the first floor of 
the Campus Center. 

The instructor, Vicky Meyer, holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from 
the University of Chicago and a Master of Fine Arts degree from the 
University of Massachusetts. An example of her work is on the concourse 
of the Campus Center, it is the green ceramic sculpture near the

Consort To Open Program 

The Paul Winter Consort will 
open the 1971 UMass summer 
program with a concert on the 
Metawampe Lawn near the 
Campus Center Thursday, July 1, 
at 8 p.m. 

This event, marking the return 
of the Winter Consort since its 
successful appearance on 
campus during the 1969 Summer 
Program, will be offered without 
charge. In case of inclement 
weather, summer students with 
identification cards will be seated 
in the Campus Center Auditorium 
before the general public. 

The Winter Consort, an ex- warm, homogeneous group 

citing group of young musicians, 
is developing an original idiom of 
music, a unique synthesis of 
symphonic orchestration, folk 
music, and improvisation. The 
seven-piece Consort includes alto 
saxophone, cello, English horn, 
alto flute, classical and 12-string 
guitar, bass, and a battery of folk 
percussion instruments. "Con- 
sort" referred originally to a 
family of instruments, which 
included all six or seven sizes of 
an instrument--such as the 
recorder-in order to achieve a 

sound. Later, consorts with 
mixed instruments evolved. 

The Paul Winter Consort 
concert will be the first of a wide 
variety of programs being of- 
fered on campus this summer. 
Those wishing a detailed listing 
of future concerts, theatre, films, 
art exhibitions and dance events

addressed envelope to the

The Drunkard... 

Temperance Melodrama 

THE DRUNKARD (or fallen 
saved), will be the Masque En- 
semble's opening production for its 
1971 summer season. It is the 
classic 19th century temperance 
melodrama, which still holds an 
international box office record, 
running for over 32 years in Los 
.Angeles and not closing until the 
early 1960's. 

It was first produced in the 
Amherst area in the early 1820's. 
F'or nearly 90 years it was con- 
sidered one of the greatest plays 
ever written in America. 
Audiences took it so much to heart 
that testimonials were given that 
after viewing the play many 
refused ever to touch liquor again. 

The Drunkard features most of 
the stock characters and situations 
of 19th century American drama. A 
long suffering and patient wife 
watches her noble husband be led 
down the path of degradation by a 
cunning and insidious villain, only 
to have virtue rewarded and 
villainy defeated in the end. The 
play is such that it allows the 20th 

century audiences to get involved 
while having a good time at it. 
They are encouraged to comment 
on the action of the play. Boo the 
villain, cheer the hero and sing 
along with the piano player. 

Though The Drunkard and most 
plays of that genre have fallen 
victim to numerous television and 
motion picture spoofs. The Masque 
will perform the play in the style of 
the original with musical ac- 
companiment and a short post 
curtain olio. Director of the 
production is William Menezes. 
Sets are designed by Paul Wonsek, 
.Jr., costumes by Maryann Tolka, 
lights by Douglas Grubber.

The Summer Statesman 



MONDAY, JUNE 28, 1971 

The 101st Commencement of The University 

The University held its commencement 
under gloomy skies on May 30. It was a quiet 
ceremony, reflecting the quiet that 
prevailed on campus during the year. The 
seniors came, got their degrees, and went 
home, probably overwhelmed by the 
knowledge that they were at last free for a 


About the only thing anyone got excited 
about were the candidates for honorary 
degrees, particularly Governor Francis W. 
Sargent, and Senator Edward Brooke. 
Brooke particularly because he is up for re- 
election soon. Many felt that awarding 
Brooke a degree was a highly questionable 
political move. In any case, Brooke came, 
got his degree, gave a speech and went 
home. We reprint his speech here for those 
of you who want to delve a little bit deeper to 
see if Brooke said anything worthwhole. 

Lord Kenneth Clark - whose studies of 
"Civilization" have received so much at- 
tention in the last year - began an article in 
the New York Times the other day with 
these words: "We have no idea where we 
are going, and sweeping, confident articles 
on the future seem to me the most 
disreputable of all forms of public ut- 

Of course, sweeping, confident comments 
on the future have been the stock and trade 
of commencement speakers for centuries. 
But somehow this spring, speaking to this 
particular college class, I must agree with 
Lord Clark that such an approach would be 
particularly "disreputable." For you really 
have seen too much to be persuaded as 
easily as my generation was that the world 
is waiting to welcome you, that your dreams 
will all come true, that your idealism will be 
rewarded. To say such things in the spring 
of your senior year would mock the 
memories of your freshman spring - scarred 
as it was by gunshots in Memphis and Los 
Angeles and by rioting in the Nation's 
ghettoes. It would deny the experience of 
your sophomore year - when turmoil raged 
on so many of our campuses. And it would 
ignore what you learned in your junior year - 
the year of Kent State and Jackson State and 

Cambodia. . , ^ . . , ^ 

Sometimes, in fact, I think the job of a 
•commencement speaker in times like these 
is a little like that of the man who was 
crossing a great bridge one day when he 
came upon a fellow perched on the rail and 
about to jump. "Come down!" said the first 
man, "things can't be that bad, after all. 
Let's take a walk and talk it over." So they 
took a walk, they talked it over, they came 
back to the center of the bridge - and they 
both jumped over the rail! 

My intention, today, is not to ressure you. 
I won't tell you that things aren't so bad, 
after all. On the other hand, I have no in- 
tention of letting myself be persuaded that 
things are so dark we should be jumping 
over rails, though there are a good many 
people around who, in one form or another, 
arc urging precisely that course. Some call 
it 'dropping out. Some talk of alienation or 
separation. Some speak of destroying the 
svstem, or bringing it to a halt. And some 
simply plan to retire from the battle. But 
whatever form it takes, jumping off bridges 
is always pretty futile. This may not he a 
time for sweeping, confident rhetoric - but 
neither is it a time for stopping the world or 
for trying to get off. 

What this is, as 1 see it, is a time for going 
on And what I would like to do today, 
therefore, is to offer a few of my own 
thoughts about what it takes to go on in 
times like these. For a text I would go back 
to an earlier time, to the year 1630. and to a 
leader who perhaps had more to do with the 
founding and early success of this Com- 
monwealth than any other man. His name 
was .John Winthrop, and this is what he 
wrote on board his ship, the Arbella. as his 
small band of settlers sailed toward the 
Massachusetts coast: "Now the only way to 
avoid this shipwreck and to provide for our 
posterity," he said, "is this: We must be knit 
together in this work as one man... 

As our life becomes more complex, 
change more rapid, and society more in- 

terdependent than ever before, the need to 
be "knit together " is greater than ever 
before. We desperately need one another if 
'we are to meet the perplexing challenges of 
modern life - not because any of us has the 
answers to the questions we face, but 

academic year, in fact, without really ever 
talking face to face with a laborer, or with a 
farmer, with a retired person, or even with 
little children. No wonder our sense of 
community is breking down. 

It sometimes strikes me as particularly 

because none of us has those answers and 
because going on together is the only way we 
can ever hope to find them. 

This is why - of all the dangers that con- 
front v.s in the 1970 s -the greatest in my 
judgment is the growing sense that we are 
coming apart. On every hand we see new 
evidence of nation being set against nation, 
region against region, class against class, 
race against race, and generation against 
generation. Over the last several years, in 
fact, the word "gap" has become the vogue 
word of our age.Everywherewe turn we hear 
about credibility gaps, communication 
gaps, culture gaps, and generation gaps. 
The gap has become the symbol of our time. 
We could spend all day talking about the 
causes of this fragmentation. One obvious 
factor is the growing scale of our society. As 
each group within our culture becomes 
larger, it becomes more self-contained. The 
suburbs are psychologically and sometimes 
physically farther from the cities. Each 
neighborhood is farther from the next one. 
Students on this campus no longer mingle as 
readily as they once did with the citizens of 
Amherst. Students can go through a whole 

ironic that such gaps have proliferated at 
the very time that our communications have 
been expanding so rapidly. But perhaps that 
very expansion is another cause of our 
division. It may well be that many of these 
gaps were there all along but we really 
didn't pay much attention to them until the 
communications revolution extended our 
horizons and helped us to see our differences 
more clearly. 

Through the mass media, suburbanites 
can see something of life in the ghetto, and 
• college students can see something of the 
hard hats. But the preoccupation of the 
media with the unusual and the sensational 
means that aU of these groups usually see 
each other at their most extreme moments - 
shouting and fighting and threatening one 
another and being represented in so many 
cases by their least responsible spokesman. 
There are many other elements which 
contribute to the division in our society: the 
revolution in religion and in values, the 
rising expectations of the disadvantaged, 
the persistence of war, the threat of nuclear 
devastation and so on. But there is one 
element which underlies all of our divisions

which I want to comment further upon 
today. What prevents us from coming 
together - in instance after instance - is our 
own self-containment, our sense of pride, of 
being right. 

As Lord Clark put it. "We have no idea 
where we are going." And yet individually, 
as groups and even as nations, we insist on 
pretending that we do. Even when it is clear 
that we have been heading in the wrong 
direction, we find it terribly difficult to 
confess that fact. Perhaps it's really 
because we are so uncertain of our powers 
that we are so unready to admit our 
limitations. Perhaps it is because we have 
so few good answers that we insist so loudly 
that we know all the answers. Perhaps it is 
because the facts are so confusing and so 
unclear that we make slogans out of our 
guesses at the truth and then shout them 
from the rooftops. And perhaps it is because 
we need one another so deeply that we are 
unwilling to talk about that need. 

During the last year and a half the most 
popular book and most popular movie in 
America has told us that "love means never 
having to say you're sorry." Even if you are 
among the few who missed both the movie 
and the book you could hardly have missed 
that line, since it has been featured so 
prominently in the public media. I don't 
know what the author of Love Story meant 
when he penned that aphorism - perhaps he 
meant that people who are in love don't have 
to say they are sorry, that they can com- 
municate that fact without any words. But 
there is also a sense in which some of Segal's 
characters are simply too proud to say they 
are sorry - and in many ways that un- 
willingness is a hallmark of our age. 

But if 1 were asked to make up my own 
little proverb on this subject it would 
probably go something like this: "Love 
means being able to say you're sorry." Love 
means being ready to admit that you are 
wrong, ready to confess that you do not 
know everything, ready to acknowledge 
your own capacity to hurt and to disappoint. 
For love, as St. Paul put it, is not "puffed 


I guess the philosophy I prefer is that 
which was expressed in another movie not 
so long ago, one based on a play by Herb 
Gardner and called A Thousand Clowns. At 
one point, the lead character - Murray 
Bums - who is something of a free spirit - 
tells his girlfriend about his experience in 
downtown Manhattan one day, when he 
decided, as he put it, to stand "right there on 
the corner of Fifty-first and Lexington for 
awhile just saying I'm sorry to everybody 
that went by." "Oh, I'm so sorry, sir..." 
"I'm terribly sorry. Madam," "Say there. 
Miss. I'm sorry. "Of course, some people 
just gave me a funny look," he says, "but, 
Sandy, I swear, 75 percent of them forgave 

. _ »» 

"Sandy," he concludes, "I could run up on 
the roof right now and holler. 'I am sorry.' 
and half a million people would holler right 
back, 'that's o.k., just see that you don't do it 

The healing power that can be unleashed 
by contrition is one of civilization's oldest 
themes. For centuries, theologians of many 
religions have told us that confession and 
repentance arc the first steps on the road to 
salvation. In this century, Freud and his 
followers have forcefully argued that 
identifying, revealing and even articulating 
our own weaknesses is fundamental to their 
cure. 1 suppose that the encounter groups 
which arc so popular today are subscribing 
to that same truth when they encourage 
their members to open up to one another, to 
talk about their hangups, to let go of their 
false pride. 

All of these philosophies, in my judgment, 
speak squarely to one of the central 
problems of our day. For whether we are 
talking about individuals, about social and 
political groups, or about nations them- 
, selves, the unreadiness to say. "I am wrong. 
• I'm sorry, ' underlies many of our most 
difficult problems. 

This is what really lies behind our dlf-

MONDAY, JUNE 28, 1971 


Where The Beer-Belly Reigns Supreme 

Oh, the blessed relief! To be away from gas stations and 
chilly air-conditioned drugstores, teletype machines and 
rubber cement and dummy sheets; this was all I desired for 
a while. 1 turned my work-weary bones southward to where 
the ocean breezes waft in and bathe you in contentment. I 
went to the Cape for a week or so. 

This should hardly startle anyone. After all, who hasn't 
ever gone to the Cape for a week or so? But nobody ever 
likes to feel like a tourist, renting a cottage for two weeks 
and spending all your time on the beach turning your skin to 
leather. I have an excuse though. I've been going to the Cape 
for years. I have relatives on the Cape. I know the Cape. 
When I go to the Cape, I know which are the best miniature 
golf courses. It's practically my second home for God's 
sake. Of course, I haven't spent more than a total of three 
weeks east of the Canal since I turned fifteen, but that's no 
matter. It's my spiritual home. 

Needless to say, then, I was shocked to find Coast Guard 
beach overrun with those foul mouthed vermin who call 
themselves surfers. 

Now, I call them vermin, but anyone who spends as much 
time in the water as they do could hardly have bugs. All day, 
at least when the tides are right, they sit on their boards, 
bobbing up and down, waiting for a good wave to catch for a 
short ride. A very short ride. I was disgusted just looking at 

"Look at them" I muttered. "These aren't waves. If 
you're going to waste your time surfing you might as well 
waste it on a big wave instead of these little things." 

"Shhh." My young friend, who was lying on the blanket I 
was sitting on, lifted her head and said, "Be quiet. All you 
ever do is complain." 

"Can I help that," I spluttered. "AH you have to do is look 
at these idiots and you can see what I mean." 

I looked back out to sea to see if they were all behaving as 
foolishly as I knew they would be. They were, all except one. 
While everyone else was busy pulling blocks of wax out of 
their wetsuits and waxing their boards so they wouldn't fall 
off, one of the idiots was lying on his upside-down board 
using the skeg for a head-rest. 

"Now look. See that guy? See what I mean about what 
jerks they are?" I demanded. 


She propped herself up on her elbows and squinted in the 
direction I was pointing. 

'Oooh, it's Jackie," she said. 

"You mean you know that fool?" I asked. 

"Yes." Standing up she began to wave to him and shout at 
him to come on in. He rolled sideways off the board, flipped 
it over, crawled on, and paddled his way to shore. 

'How come he was lying on it like that?" I asked. 

"He just likes to go out in the water and fool around, " she 

'I thought you had your license taken away if you didn't 
ride at least four out of every six waves." I said. 

Before she could answer, Jackie was up to us, dropping his 
board in the sand with a thud and sprinkling us with water. 

"Jackie," she said excitedly, "lake David down so he can 
meet the guys." 

'You'll pay for this," I growled, but I got up and went 
down to where a bunch of wet-suit clad goliaths were hud- 
dled around a beer cooler. 

"Haw, haw, here's Jackie," guffawed the biggest and 
lewdest looking of the bunch. 

'Shut up, Ambrose," said Jackie good-naturedly, "and 
Kive us a beer." 

"Haw, haw," laughed Ambrose. "Catch. Who's this guy?" 

"A friend of mine." said Jackie. "He think's you guys are 

I winced. No. I almost passed out. Everyone in the group 
turned their eyes to me and waited. The temperature was 90 
degrees but I could feel myself get even hotter. I sipped a 
littleout of the can and mumbled something incoherent. 

"Ihiw, haw, what was that, man? " asked Ambrose. 

"Nothing, nothing." I stammered. "It's just that I ..." 

"C'mon man, speak up. I can't hear you. I work in an 
airport," said Ambrose. 
"Well, wait a minute and I'll tell you," I blurted. 

Ah, Surfer! The very mention of your name conjures up 
such memories: Juicy Brucie and Beach Blanket Bingo 
Bonanza; Jan and Dean and the little old lady from 
Pasadena; the Beach Boys and Surfer Girl. All memories 
that are better left hidden, perhaps stifled, for who now 
longs for the good old days, those days of leisure when the 
shape of the curl was the only thing to trouble the mind's 
bliss? Surely, not I. I seek my relaxation in calmer waters, 
safer waters, warmer waters. Still, if you feel you must pour 
your body into a clinging rubber skin, take your stick and 
dive headlong into the heartstopping waters of Mother 
Ocean, then far be it from me to stop you. I will go so far as 
to indulge you and stay out of the way of you and your Death 
Wish, for you are crazy. 

And so I told them. And so you can probably imagine what 
happened next. Remember when you were eight years old 
and it seemed like the only thing kids ever said to you was 
"Why don't you try it then, smarty-pants?" Well, this time it 
was "wise-ass" or something, but the effect was the same. 

It was really hot that day and I was standing around 
arguing with all these guys who had wet suits on. I was tired, 
the sun was getting to me. I started to squint my eyes 
because they hurt. My tongue was loose, flopping around, 
saying things that shocked even me. Things far away on the 
beach began to shimmer and dance. I could see the heat 
waves rising off the scorching sands. I turned back to the 
little group. Who was this person in the black rubber jacket 
and what did he want from me? Why was he telling me I had 
a big mouth? And what was that shiny curved thing he kept 
pointing at as he yelled? I could feel the bottom of my 
stomach sink and I didn't know why. Two guys grabbed me 
and forced me into a rubber skin and zipped me in. I stood in 
dumbfounded wonder on the beach, wondering what had 
happened to my skin. Someone tucked a surfboard under my 
arm, pointed me at the ocean and pushed. I stumbled like a 
drunken man down to the water's edge. The icy water hit my 
feet and I snapped alert. I turned around. There they were. 
Up on the beach, standing, with their arms folded across 
their chests. I gulped. Surfing? Now, wait just a minute. Jan 
and Dean, Doheny Beach, Surfer Joe, a little deuce doupe 
and all that? Visions of ho-daddies swam in my head. I'd 
never even seen a surfboard outside of a Jordan Marsh 
sports department and now I was being told to take that 
stick and ride it. The mere thought made me giddy. From 
somewhere up on the beach I could hear voices teUing me to 
ride that wild surf. I turned and looked at the ocean. Two to 
three foot swells and a mild offshore breeze. Water tem- 
perature—somewhere between totally numbing and mildly 

I gave the final yanks to each of my new skin's five zip- 
pers. I picked up that wax-covered wonder that I was sup- 
posed to master, swallowed my pride, gritted my teeth, and 
let the waves rush over my head. 

An eternity of cold and froth passed. The ocean surged and 
1 was tumbled down, down, to an azure world of rippling 
sands. A giant hand lifted me back to the thinner half of our 
blue and green world and new life surged through my veins. 

Then I was sucked under again and again I was an un- 
willing visitor to an alien land. Finally the waves threw me 
onto my home, the dry land, and I rose up on my wobbly 

They were still standing there, mysterious black figures. I 
looked at them yearningly, begging for release from this 

They began to laugh and nod at me and poke each other 
with their elbows. I understood that my torture would 

Throwing the board in front of me, I plunged out through 
the waves to the middle of the sandbar. I was determined to 
catch the next promising wave and ride it to shore. A glassy 
swell was coming up behind me quickly and quietly. I began 
to paddle with my weary arms to catch it. It bore down on 
me and caught me up. Instantly I was heaved towards the 
beach, the wave carrying me low, in its belly, and surging up 
around my head and shoulders. It began to break and I was 
pitched forward into the white froth (soup, for the initiated). 
The skeg on the bottom of the board dragged in the sand and 
I rolled off the board into the shallow water. 

Well, now that hadn't been so bad. I turned the board 
around and headed back out for another wave. The surf was 
so intense that day I spent the entire afternoon out there on 
my stick. The tide began to come in, ruining the surfing, so I 
called it a day and went to shore. 

My chick wa« standing waiting for me with a towel. 

"Hoy, baby." I said. "See me catch that last wave. That 
thing was really heavy. I was really getting into this sur- 

"What did you say?" she asked. 

"I said I was really getting my head into this surfing." 

"That's what I thought I heard." she replied, flipping the 
towel at mo and starting off up the beach. 

"Hoy. baby," 1 called, "What's hasseling you anyway?" 

She began to run. In a moment .she disappeared up the 
St airs to the parking lot. 1 could hear her red beetle start and 

she roared off, leaving me alone on the beach. 

Not quite alone. I looked down to where my torturers had 
been huddled. They were drinking beer. Man, those red and 
white cans looked good. One of them held a can up in my 
direction. That was all I needed. Picking up the board i 
walked down the beach to where the guys were standing and 
drinking. A beer can found its way into my hand and I stood 
there, just letting that delicious gold liquid pour down my 


Ambrose came swaggering over and slapped me on the

man? " he asked. 

"That's cool." I said, "where is it?" 

"Over at this girl Gayle's house," he said, "Haw, haw. 
Have another beer." 

The party was in full swing when Ambrose and I pulled up 
in his Mach I. 

"Balls, " he said. "Lookit all these cars. That place must 
be mobbed inside."

Trustees Approve Rent, Board Hikes 

Increases in room rents, the cost of meals, and the Campus Center 
fee, as well as reductions in the student activities tax and the senior 
class fee at UMass were approved by the Board of Trustees meeting in 
Amherst Saturday, May 29. 

The room and board increases have been discussed over the last 
several weeks by Vice Chancellors Randolph W. Bromery of Student 
Affairs and Thomas B. Campion of Administrative Services and 
members of their staffs with numerous groups of student leaders and 
Student Senate committees. Students were given options on room rents 
and meal costs for their consideration. 

Beginning September. 1971, students will have 3 choice of 10 meals a 
week ( any two meals each week day) for $271.50 a semester, or 15 meals 
a week for $306.50 a semester. A University meal plan is mandatory for 
all students living in campus resident halls — except seniors, those 
over 21, and those given exemptions for extraordinary reasons. 
Presently, students pay $265 for 15 meals a week each semester. The 
new rate schedule is an increase of $6.50 or 3% a semester for 10 meals a 
week, and $35 or 16% a semester for 15 meals a week, as compared to 
the present rate. 

This year all students living in Southwest are required to buy a meal 
ticket. Beginning in the fall, these Southwest Residents will be allowed 
the same exemptions as students living in other residence halls on 

Room rents will be increased by $50 for all student residence halls. 
UMass residence halls owned by the state (older residence halls) will be 
$275 a semester, those owned by the UMass Building Authority on a self- 
liquidating basis and those older dormitories recently renovated will be 
$305, and new dormitores (Cashin, McNamara, and Brown) with suite- 
type accommodations will be $350. Some income from the rent increase 
will go toward renovation of two older residence halls, refurbishing in 
others, increased security throughout, and student-initiated projects to 
improve living conditions. 

Reasons for the increases are the rising costs of food, labor, utilities, 
and maintenance materials. The dining halls have been operating at a 
deficit for several years, and it has been two years since the last in- 
crease in the cost of the meal ticket. 

The annual student fee for the Campus Center was increased from $48 
to $60 for all undergraduates and graduate students. 

The student activities tax has 
been reduced by $1 to $35.00 a year; 
and the yearly senior class tax has 
been cut in half by $4. Class 
government has been abolished by 

the students, and since classes will 
sponsor fewer projects, they 
require less income. 

Of the estimated 20,350 students 
expected to attend classes next 

fail, it is estimated that 11,600 will 
live in campus residence halls and 
9,250 will eat in the dining com- 


Silver Screen Test 

If it seems that you've been 
watching more late shows and 
enjoying it less then light up a fresh 
cigarette, prop up your sagging 
eyelids and or hemmoroids and 
latch on to this little potpourri quiz 
of nonsensical information. It's 
guaranteed to clutter your mind 
with a multitude of useless in- 
formation and put back the magic 
of the silver screen into your 
favorite Audy Murphy movie. 

To start off with an easy one, 
what was the Atlanta street where 
Aunt Pittypat lived in "Gone With 
the Wind"? For those of you who 
find it right on the tip of your 
tongue but not quite accessible 
Ihen try to visualize in your mind a 
fruit that blossoms in the Spring. 
To still be considered an obnoxious 
3xpert on the popular flick, what 
were the names of the O'Hara and 
he Wilkes plantation? 

If you've decided that titles of 
jhows are more in line with your 
-nemory then fill in the blanks of 
he following shows with a part of 
he human anatomy: "Kiss The 

Blood Off My ", "A Farewell To 

....", "Moon Over Her ". 

The names Frances Gumm, 
\rchibald Leach and Charles 

Edward Pratt belong to the 
following gentlemen: Glenn Ford, 
Boris Karloff and Tony Curtis. It is 
up to the well read movie buff to 
decide which name belongs to who. 
And for those who were avid fans of 
child stars name the twinkling 
brats who played in the following 
movies: "The Little Colonel" and 
"Little Pal". 

Correctly naming the stars who 
portrayed the following comic strip 
characters will win you an 
honorary Wilkic button entitling 
you to act like an ass at the next 
Walt Disney matinee. Who por- 
trayed Jungle Jim, The Lone 
Ranger, Prince Valiant, Dick 
Tracy and Dagwood Bumstead? 

Putting an end to something 
which should ha\e been buried a 
long time ago is the Hollywood 
Obituaries. Brief biographies of 
stars who are now deceased will be 
given. Try to identify the star. 
(1920-1951) Married to Jean Pierre 
Aumont, she died of an overdose of 
reducing salts in the bathtub. 
(1880-1946) He was a star of 
vaudeville and the "Follies" who 
was fond of his liquor. His dying 
words were, "I think I'd rather be 
in St. Louis." (1879-1935) All he 

knew was what he read in the 
newspaper. He dies in a plane 
crash with Wiley Post in Alaska. 
(1880-1940) Of "shave and a hair 
cut two bits" ... fame he was a 
famous star of westerns and rodeos 
who died in an automobile accident

Plain, Honest Sound 

Addition To Program 

This summer a new addition to the Summer Arts Program will supply a 
oosely organized format for students and staff interested in par- 
icipating in outdoor programs. 

Plans call for trips to leave the Campus Center in the early evening on 
VIonday or Tuesday each week. The activities will attempt to satisfy a 
vide range of outdoor interests and may include the following: hiking, 
•anoeing, rock climbing, caving, bicycling. 

After evening trips begin, longer weekend trips may be a possibility if 
here is a lot of interest in the area. Hiking and overnight camping on the 
.ong and Appalachian Trails, climing at the Shawangunk cliffs, and 
Vhite Water canoeing trips are logical outgrowths of the proposed 
vening program. The destinations of each trip will be announced during 
he week preceding the trip as will the exact time and place of departure. 

All trips will be well within the skill limits of the beginner and in- 
tructions will be available when applicable. 

Picnic With D, J. 

The very true sign of brilliance in 
an artist is the ability to create for 
the audience that special moment 
when the spirit and sound of the 
song combine. As with so many 
other groups THE FLYING 
conveying this difficult, but unlike 
many of their struggling con- 
temporaries the attempt is there 
and noticeable. 

In their third album, THE 
the lyrical experiments of the first 
album and the musical refinement 
of the second is pleasingly visible. 
Missing from their country-city 
musical format is the hard loud 
rock sounds which evolved from 
the BYRDS experiments with the 
very same thing. However, since 
spring from the BYRDS one cannot 
help but notice the lyrical in- 
fluence. They are by no means 
identifiable with the love and booze 
songs of the country and western 
set, instead what is found is a 
smooth updated verse. 

Possibly a reason why this 

album is missing the frenzied 
amateurishness of the first two is 
due to the fact that much of the 
material is original and as such no 
interpretation is needed. Richard 
Roberts, vocalist, rhythm guitarist 
and composer, wrote three of the 
songs and with Chris Hillman, 
bassist and organizer of the group 

wrote four. 

Although they have come a long 
way since their first cut, they are 
by no means perfect. There is a 
great deal of repetition in the style 
and production, but because of the 
realness and just plain honest 
sound falling into a liking for the 
album cannot be helped. 

"D. J. on his guitar, and a band 

amed Chester McGraw will be 

matured at the opening program of 

le special events portion of the 

oummer Program. The picnic will 

be held on Wednesday, June 30 at 

5:00 p.m. at the Campus Pond. 

A chicken barbecue of a half- 
chicken, cole slaw, potatoe chips, 

rolls and butter, and chocolate chip 
cookies will be served by the 
University Food Services for free 
for those summer students who

Other students and staff may

Hot Summer School 


Ya say you just crawled out of a lecture hall with 120 
other poor wretches, after the air concJitioner broke 
down, and ran into a "fine arts dust storm" by the 
pond? And ya crossed the commuter parking lot 
wasteland to find your car was towed cause the sticker 
crackled off in the sun? And ya looked down to find 
your palm is the same color of that new blue calculus 
book ya just bought? You know, the one that now 
has 3 pints of sweat between pages 14 and 347, is 
that what's gettin' ya a little hot under the collar 

Well pick up that dehydrated little body of yours and 
move on over to the air conditioned Campus Center, 
get one of those big soft-serv ice creams in the Coffee 
Shop, or get on down the hall to the Blue Wall "Sum- 
mer Hatch" and shovel one of those big Banana 
Royales onto that parched tongue of yours, take out 
your T.O.C. Club Card and head for the 11th floor 
and quaff one of those frosty draft Michelobs or sip 
on a great Cape Codder, sit back, relax, and watch 
the sun roast the swans on the pond.

Not Envy But Compassion 

Summer Session 
Most Promising 

While the Summer Session which began today may not 
be the largest in UMass history, in many respects it seems 
to be the most promising one. The course offerings seem to 
be greater and more varied than in previous years and 
many departments are offering seminars (presumably 
with smaller class sizes), something done rarely in the 
past. The Swingshift program has been considerably 
improved in terms of course offerings. The program ad- 
mits over 350 freshmen to the summer session rather than 
the fall session, and these students become a part of the 
regular academic schedule during second semester in 
January. Partially because of the considerable reduction 
in core curriculum requirements, and partly in response to 
complaints of Swingshifters concerning the previously 
limited course offerings, the number of courses which are 
offered to Swingshifters have more than doubled since the 
programs inception some five or six years ago. 

The eight week session will probably prove to be a 
desirable alternative to the six week session since it cuts 
the length of an average class twenty minutes - many 
professors had to do this anyway. It also facilitates 
enrollment in over two courses for those who are in- 

The Summer Arts program is particularly active this 
year and it offers quite a variety of free entertainment in 
the otherwise dormant asparagus valley. One effective 
means to gauge just how good a program it is, is to observe 
how many people come from outside the university 
community to enjoy the events. Many of these are from 
the Springfield, Holyoke, and Pittsfield areas. Of course 
this also may be indicative of the lack of musical and 
artistic programs in those areas during the summer. 

Eventually because of the ever-increasing number of 
applications for college admission, summer sessions here 
and at other places will probably evolve into full-fledged 
academic semesters with a comparable enrollment. Not 
only is it more economical to operate the facilities, which 
already exist here throughout the calendar year, but old 
educational concepts, such as identification with a par- 
ticular class and the traditional calendar for an academic 
year seem to be losing their efficacy. There is little reason 
to think that this is anything else but a change for the good. 

"'•We Haveiri Noticed Any Biiiiiper Trouble" 

Well, the first issue of the Statesman is now history. We're glad of 
it, too. But for better or worse, this is your newspaper for the 
summer and you are cordially invited up to the office to help out in 
any little way you want to. We can be found on the second floor of 
the student Union in the Daily Collegian office, which by the way, 
has nothing whatever to do with this publication. Special thanks for 
this issue go to Tim KcUey, Dennis Langley, Jill Brinckerhoff, and

hasn't come out yet and will be out shortly. 

Lament For Under 25 

One of the most distinguished of contemporary 
social scientists and one of the more conservative of 
Harvard faculty members, Oscar Handlin is Charles 
Warren Professor of American History. 

A second-generation Russian immigrant, Handlin 
was l^orn in New York City, graduated from Brooklyn 
College, and received his Masters and PhD from 
Harvard. Handlin has devoted his attention primarily 
to United States' social history and, in 1951, received a 
Pulitzer Prize for 'The Uprooted," a study of 
American immigration. 

By Oscar Handlin 

(Reprinted from the Harvard Independent.) 
This time hail the approach of the year's end with 
more than the usual relief. Gone is the old resilience 
worn away by the reproaches of the grownups among 
my readers. I am too soft for their tastes. My flaccid 
avuncular attitude, they argue, is all very well for the 
ordinary mischief of ordinary times. But look at the 
damage they do: Let them have it! 

I see the damage. But I cannot harden my heart. 
The truth is that I am sorry for that whole tattered 
army of the under-twenty-fives, which flaps in 
disarray around so much of the country. I no sooner 
get down a good biting sentence than sympathy 
compels me to draw the sting out of it. 

Why be sorry for them who have had everything? 

They have had everything that was not important. 
But they have been deprived of what counts and they 
are the insensate victims of a revolution of the nature 
of which they are quite unaware. 

The crudest loss is loss of time, which slips 
unheeded away never to be recaptured. I try to 
imagine what it must be like to be 25 years old or 27, to 
be mature in body and brain and still to be a youth, 
that is to have expended a quarter of a century and to 
have achieved nothing other than the preparation - 
more or less valuable - for future achievement - more 
or less aspired toward. 

I wonder at the aquiescence of so many in the waste 
of their energies, in the attenuation of all sense of 
purpose, in the dull habituation to an empty existence, 
even in the defiance which is a game played to fill out 
the years. 

Prolonged detachment from life deprives youth of 
the opportunity for experience. Nothing real happens 
to those lapped in comfortable dependence and 
shielded by beneficient insititions against exposure to 
the elements. 

There are no jagged, messy contacts, in birth, 
illness, death, joy, hunger, pain, all pre-packaeed in 
cellophone and neatly programmed. With all the 
decisions made by qualified experts, nothing wrong 
can happen. In fact, nothing at all seems to happen, in 
the absence of choice, responsibility, control, risk. 

Synthetics are not substitutes, the evanescent swirl 
of sensation brings a moment's forgetfulness; it does 
not fill the aching void. Raise the dosage; it will still 
not yield an equivalent for authenticity. 

How many forms of oblivion become objects of the 
anxious desire of those who do not know, do not expect 
to know, experience at first hand. How desperate is 
the desire of those willing to feel anything in order to 
feel something, because they feel nothing. 

Would you believe it - how many millions has 
schooling deprived of education: Nine years ago I 

wrote an article, "Are the Colleges Killing 

Time now to remove the questionmark. 

In the 1970's we sentence more of our youth to more 
years in school than ever before in history so that 
never have Americans been as poorly educated as 
now. The victims, of course, have no idea of what is 
wrong with them but since they thrash about so, 
everyone solicitously asks their opinion. In the nature 
of the case, the remedies proposed deepen the disease. 
Reform invariably multiplies committees, com- 
plicates apparatus and sucks the student into a 
procedural maze so that he cannot conceive of lear- 
ning other than in terms of courses and credits. 

Who would believe that it was once possible to read 
or see a movie or play the guitar without Independent 

In this sad catalogue of deprivations, the most 
poignant item is loss of the heritage of language. I do 
not refer here to the ordinary failings of the bluebook 
or the recitation but to a far more serious and more 
recent impoverishment. Possibilities of com- 
munication through pictures, signs, symbols and 
gestures remain. 

But the emotional connotations and the allusive 
power formerly attached to words depended for their 
strength not only on shared literary sources but also 
on shared experiences. 

People inundated by a flood of words cease to think 
of meaning, particularly when there are no ready 
connections either with respected texts or immediate 
experience. Crises find them tongue-tied or abusive, 
in either case incapable of expressing and therefore 
understanding their own feelings. 

However it may offend our esthetic sensibilities, the 
inarticulate private scrawling on the fence must 
command our sympathy. 

Deprived of access to life, of experience, of learning 
and of language, all too many young people have also 
suffered the withering effects of the counter- 
Copernican revolution. 

Everyone knows the Copernican revolution. 
Squinting at the stars in Frauenburg, Nicolas C. 
redrew the map of the universe - sun at center, not 
earth, not man, not me. In the centuries since, the 
map expanded: the stars; galaxies appeared; and 
man had painfully to relate himself to a scenario in 
which he was far from the leading character; in which 
indeed he made but a brief episode off in a corner of 
the immense stage and did so without comprehending 
the whole act, much less the whole drama. 

The counter-Copernican revolution is less well 
known. Its origins are obscure but lie somewhere in 
the past 20 years. It too recasts the map of the 
universe - with now the individual ME at the center, 
each sovereign personality the object of a special 
creation, each ordaining its own laws of attraction and 
repulsion that establish the relevance to it of all 
satellite bodies. 

Hung on a wall, one map is as pretty as another. But 
many a shipwreck follows from the effort to navigate 
by a decorative squiggle. And watching the ill- 
equipped set forth, I feel not the envy appropriate to 
my own age, but compassion.

Four U.S. Senators got a real 
thrill Friday in New York City. 
Along with members of a drug 
fighters group from Harlem and 
tv newsmen, they walked into a 
basement 'shooting gallery' and 
surprised a half dozen heroin 
addicts in the process of shooting 

Senators Jacob Javits (R.-i 
N.Y.), Harrison Williams (D- 
N.J.), Richard Schweiker (R-'

after cameramen turned their 
lights on and scared the junkies. 
One of the junkies reportedly 
pulled a knife and threatened to 
break them all open. Javits 
described the place as "a Stygian 

Earlier, the Senators watched 
a sixteen-year old buy heroin on 
the street. When the youth 
handed the heroin to Hughes, he 
commented, "It's a national 
tragedy that a small boy can buy 
drugs openly." 

The Senators are part of a 
subcommittee investigating New . 
York drug traffic. 

Even though the Selective 
Service law expires on June 30, 
the Pentagon is issuing draft 
calls totaling 16,000 men for July 
and AugusVA two-year extension 
of the draft has passed both the 
House and the Senate but has not 
been enacted yet. Once final 
details are resolved the bill is 
expected to go to President Nixon 
sometime in July. 

Meanwhile, the Selective 
Service people are going on the 
assumption that the draft will be 
extended. If the bill does not pass 
in its final stages, draft officials 
said the July-August call could be 
filled with college students who 
lost their deferments at the end of 
the school year. The 8,000-man 
call per month is the lowest since 
December's 7,000-man call.

is confident Congress will extend 
the draft but said he will not issue

should go to substandard nursing 
homes in this country and sub- 
sidize them," Nixon said. 

His comments appeared to be 
in response to a critical study 
recently released by Ralph 
Nader concerning nursing 
homes. 900,000 Americans live in 
what Nixon called, "dumping 

grounds for the dying."

Two very interesting things 
happened when the Senate voted 
last Wednesday to urge the 

President to withdraw all 
American troops from Vietnam 
within nine months if United 
States prisoners of war would be 
freed. The first was the White 
Houses' disregarding the ad- 
visory bill. The second was the 
fact Mr. Nixon decided to release 
the 47 volume 7,000 page Pen- 
tagon study of the Vietnam War 
to the Congress. This is in- 
teresting because for two years 
the Congress has requested 
copies of the report and the ad- 
ministration claimed that further 
dissemination would not be 
useful. However, according to 
White House Press secretary 
Ronald Ziegler, the Pentagon 
War study had created a 
"situation in which the Congress 
would be necessarily making 
judgments based on incomplete 
information." There seems to be 
little doubt that- the report would 
be useful in making judgments 
and formulating opinions. 

Text of Senator Brooke's Address (continued) 

ficulties in Indo-China, it seems to me. 
Unwilling to blemish our proud history, we 
have been slow to admit that we were wrong 
to get involved in this conflict. For too long, 
we were primarily concerned about saving 
pride and saving face in Southeast Asia - and 
each time new evidence showed us the error 
of our ways, we responded only by raising 
the ante, and by plunging in deeper. But 
think how the world would have responded if 
the most powerful nation on earth had 
simply said: "We made a mistake - we are 
sorry - we are going to get out." 

And it is only as we come to swallow our 
pride and confess our mistake in Southeast 
Asia that the situation there will really 
improve. And it will be only by retaining a 
highly realistic sense of our own limitations, 
onl;. by realizing that we cannot play the 
role of judge or of policeman for the world, 
that we will be able to prevent future 

The same pattern holds as we deal with 
domestic problems. Only in the last few 
years, for example, have we begun to 
confess the sins we have comitted against 
our environment. For years we bragged of 
our proud technological accomplishments. 
Then, gradually, we began to see that while 
we glorified technology, we were exploiting 
nature and that the same behavior we once 
regarded as the very image of responsibility 
would have to be sharply adjusted if our 
natural surroundings were to be protected 
and renewed. 

Since our beginning, white Americans 
have systematically committed wrongs 
against minority groups - Indians, Mexican- 
AmericanSi Blacks and poor whites alike. 
Think of what the response could be if, 
today, millions of white Americans said to 
those who are black, yellow, red and poor, 
"We are wrong. We are sorry for years of 
prejudice, nisunderstanding, hatred, and 
discrimination. We accept you as our 
brothers, we will work with you to achieve 
what this country ought to be." 

We still have a long way to go in this 
direction. But perhaps one of the hidden 
blessings of our time will be an increased 
capacity for questioning our own 
righteousness, a capacity which is the mark 
of true confidence and maturity both in 
nation^and in men. If that happens, and I 
am hopeful that it will, then a great deal of 
credit will have to go to your generation, 
which has been idealistic enough - some 
might even say naive enough - to remind 
America of its oldest and finest dreams. You 
already have helped our society to measure 
itself by its truly noble standards. And while 
it has been sad to see the distance between 
the real and the ideal, it is at least en- 
couraging to know that we at last are ready 
to acknowledge that disparity. 

Yet I sometimes fear that the price of 
calling others to account can be the loss of 
one's own capacity for self-appraisal. And I 
am a bit disturbed by the thought that those 
who have done so much to remind our 
society of its limitations may begin to forget 
their own. It was Chekov who warned us that 
"you cannot become a saint through other 
people's sins." And yet we all know very 
well how easily our impatience with the 
shortcomings of others can bring out our 
own most self-righteous traits. 

There is a real danger, in my judgment, 
that this tendency could continue to grow 

among us, and that many in your 
generation, as you pursue your own private 
visions of the truth, may one day find 
yourselves cut off more sharply than you 
may have expected from a society which 
you need as much as it needs you. 

This danger came home to me with 
special force a couple of weeks ago when a 
young visitor to Washington tried to explain 
his mission by announcing that the only way 
to save the Government of the United States 
this Spring was by shutting it down. I 
thought that sounded familiar somehow, 
and then I remembered the phrase which 
had so much to do with the turning of public 
opinion against the Vietnam war a few years 
ago, the comment by a military officer that 
"we had to destroy the village in order to 
save it." That comment struck me than as 
an arrogant and terrifying thing to say 
about a village which belonged to so many 
other Asians. Similarly, the May Day tactics 
a couple of weeks ago struck me as a 
presumptuous and arrogant way for a group 
of dissenters to deal with a city and a 
Government which belongs to so many other 

Now that was an extreme case, of course. 
And so, I suppose, were those few instances 
this past year when small groups declared 
that the only way they could bring true 
freedom to our campuses was by denying 
the freedom of others to assemble and speak 
in support of unpopular views. 

Yet, in more subtle ways, our certainty 
that we are right can cause many of us to 
become careless about the respect we show 
for other opinions. In our certainty that we 
are right, many of us become careless about 
the rights of others. It is very easy for us to 
claim that procedural guarantees are mere 
niceties of law, that wrong opinions do not 
deserve a real hearing, that nothing is really 
gained by allowing error its rights. And it is 
easier still for us to close our minds to other 
points of view even though we tolerate their 
expression, to shut our ears, and our hearts 
to those whom we have learned to regard as 
different from us, because of their age, or 
their dress, or where they are from, or what 
they have said on other subjects. 

Yet if centuries of political experience 
have taught us anything, they should have 
taught us this: any time the rights and the 
dignity of any man are compromised then 
the rights and the dignity of every man are 
made less secure. And this is true whether 
the compromising is by a body of unruly 
dissenters (*• by the Intelligence Branch of 
the Army, or by a narrow-minded professor 
or by the FBI. 

-« Knowledge of our limitations is the most 
important thing any student can learn. If 
nothing else has happened to you during 
your years at this institution, I would hope 
that perhaps at least now and then you have 
been frightened just a little by catching a 
glimpse of how much you do not know. 
Maybe it came one day when you were 
walking past the library and realized - as 
Thomas Wolfe did - just how many books 
you have not read. Maybe it came in the 
laboratory when you realized with a start all 
the experiments you would never have time 
to perform. Or maybe it came when you 
went home for a vacation, or spent a 
semester practice teaching, or worked for a 
summer in a factory or (for that matter) in 
a Congressional office, or when you did your 
tour in Vietnam - and in such new settings 
realized how little your academic learning 

could tell you about the real world. 

These can all be unsettling experiences. 
But, as President Goheen of Princeton once 
put it: "If you come out of here with the 
feeling that your two feet are planted firmly 
on the ground, then somehow this school has 
failed you." 

The willingness to play fair, to abide by 
legitimate rules, to accept the objective 
disciplines of a free society - this alone 
separates us from the law of the jungle. It is 
our readiness to submit our ideas to the test 
of searching inquiry and open debate that 
makes the rule of reason possible. Without 
ths readiness, a society would quickly lose 
that diversity of views which alone gives it 
the capacity for self-correction and renewal. 

Yet it will not suffice merely to glorify 
diversity of opinion as our saving grace. 
Beyond the conflict of views we must forge a 
basis for common action on the great issues 
which confront us. Politics teaches us how 
often one man's certainty is another's doubt. 
Earnest conviction may impede essential 
cooperation. And so the central challenge of 
public life in a pluralistic society is to map 
an agreed course which men and women of 
various perspectives can willingly pursue. 
Accommodation must follow confrontation 
or we breed only stalemate. 

1 am especially perplexed by a current 
case which is very much in point. It con- 
cerns the difference of opinion which has 
emerged between the Senate and the Ad- 
ministration over the scope of the Geneva 
Protocol of 1925. That Protocol is the 
principal agreement aimed at preventing 
the use of poison gas and other chemical 
agents in warfare. Some 88 nations are 
parties to the agreement. Unfortunately, for 
a variety of reasons, for almost half a 
century the United States has not ratified 
the Protocol. Not only has our failure to 
ratify weakened a vital building block of 
international arms control; it may also 
make it more difficult to negotiate ad- 
ditional limitations on biological weapons, 
since other nations understandably argue 
that the United States should first demon- 
strate its good faith by adhering to the single 
agreement which has already been con- 

To his credit President Nixon has sub- 
mitted the Protocol to the Senate for 
ratification. He has also taken a number of 
other steps to indicate our dedication to 
arms control in this field; of special im- 
portance was his decision that the United 
States will unilaterally abandon work on 
biological weapons. 

In submitting the Protocol for ratification 
the Administration noted that there are 
differing interpretations of its precise 
coverage. The Secretary of State em- 
phasized that the Executive Branch does not 
consider the Protocol to prohibit the use of 
either herbicides or riot control agents. 
Many of us in the Senate, however, disagree 
with this interpretation. We feel strongly 
that both herbicides and riot control agents 
ought to be banned. This difference of 
opinion between sincere and conscientious 
men now threatens to produce a deadlock. 
Unless a way can be found to reconcile the 
Senate and the Administration, ratification 
of this important Protocol may be delayed 

The budding structure of peace is fragile 
and precious; it needs all the reinforcement 
we can provide. 1 do not believe the present 
dispute should cause the United States to 

withhold its support of the Protocol. As 
many experts have testified, the evidence on 
whether the Protocol covers herbicides and 
riot control agents is inconclusive. 

In order to break the impasse on this 
issue, I will shortly offer a Senate resolution 
urging that the question be referred to the 
International Court of Justice for an 
authoritative interpretation. The resolution 
will also make clear that, should the Court 
exclude these agents from the Protocol, the 
United States should promptly seek further 
negotiations to prohibit their use. 

I am confident that a majority of Senators 
believe herbicides and riot control agents 
should be banned as weapons of war, and 
that they will welcome an opportunity to 
express that conviction by endorsing the 
proposed resolution. It is my hope that, 
having provided a means for resolving the 
dispute over herbicides and riot control 
agents, the Senate will then be able to ratify 
the Protocol forthwith and without reser- 

Given the ambiguity of the Protocol, not to 
mention the fact that this country is not a 
party to it, the United States has made use of 
herbicides and tear gas in Southeast Asia. 
However, the President has already sharply 
curtailed the use of such agents. I am 
hopeful that the Administration, with its 
record of achievement in this field, will be 
agreeable to a prohibition on the future use 
of herbicides and tear gas in war. And I trust 
it will recognize an opportunity to save the 
Protocol by accepting a Senate recom- 
mendation to seek appropriate judicial 
interpretation of the disputed provision. 
Such a compromise would be both good law 
and sound policy. The search for ac- 
commodation on issues of this kind is the 
lifeblood of the American community. So it 
has been since our nation was founded. 

Nowhere is this point expressed more 
cogently than on the very last day of the 
debate on the new Constitution of the United 
States, September 18, 1787. The final vote 
was only minutes away when the Chairman 
recognized Dr. Benjamin Franklin. 

"I confess that there are several parts of 
this Constitution which I do not at present 
approve," Dr. Franklin began. "But I am 
not sure I shall never approve them. For . . . 
the older I grow the more apt I am to doubt 
my own judgment . . ." 

Then Benjamin Franklin concluded with 
these famous words: "On the whole sir, I 
cannot help expressing a wish that every 
member of the convention who may still 
have objections to it would, with me, on this 
occasion doubt a little of his own in- 

And so, doubting a little of their own in- 
fallibility. Dr. Franklin and his colleagues 
took their vote. And that is how our 
government began. 

No one was fully satisfied that day in 
Philadelphia. No one knew the moral delight 
of having turned his private vision into 
public reality. And yet, the product of their 
common efforts was a frame of government 
which has lasted for over 180 years. It 
deserves to last much longer, and I believe it 

Like those men, we, too, can overcome the 
circumstances of our time. We, too, can 
bridge the gaps and heal the scars and bind 
up the wounds of our people, if only we, like 
they, will doubt a little of our own in- 
fallibility, recognize our need for one 
another, and move on together in loving 
pursuit of our common dreams.

MONDAY, JUNE 28, 1971 

Where The Beer-Belly Reigns Supreme (continued) 

Cross-eyed with his finger in his mouth he looked like a 
gorilla in desperate need of a banana. 
"Oh. yeah." 
His face brightened. 
"Where's Gayle?" he asked again. 
"She went to the packy," replied the man with the book, 
"She'll be back in a while." 

Ambrose and I retired to the kitchen and the noise 
resumed. From out of one of the bedrooms came th& sound 
of Mick Jagger being played with a metal rake. Everyone in 
the living room was sitting with his feet on something, 
footstools, coffee tables, the tv, everywhere there were feet 
at knee level. The kitchen was lined with people drinking 
beer and wine and at the table a toothy girl was trying to roll 
a joint. 

I stood watching with itchy fingers. She was doing a bad 
job but something warned me to keep still and just wait for it 
to come around the table. By the time I got it it was loose at 
the end, wet and falling apart. Wetting my finger I pasted it 
back together and took a big toke. It was pretty good stuff. 
Twice around the table and it was finished. Teeth threw the 
roach in the ashtray. I stood leaning on the stove. The un- 
smoked roach disturbed me, some good snorts were left in 
that thing, but I couldn't speak. The roach was soon covered 
over with cigarette ashes and forgotten. 
The guy next to me edged me with his elbow. 
"Here," he said. 
Another joint. 

Twice around the table and everyone got to bury the roach 
again. Soon the ashtray was full of ashes, roaches, and beer 
can tops. I was still propped against the stove, no longer able 
to think or move. 

But for some reason I liked leaning against that stove. For 
one thing, it was the only thing between me and gravity, and 
for another, it was nice and warm because Ambrose had just 
heated a TV dinner because he was hungry. Now he was 
eating it while I watched and thought about getting sick. Big 
hunks of rubbery chicken, smeared all over with mushy 
green peas were slowly, inexorably disappearing into 
Ambrose's mouth and being chewed to gruel. Ambrose 
devoured the meal mechanically, and when he finished, 
pushed the tin plate away and burped. 

The belching roused me out of my fascinated stupor. I saw 
the same Ambrose in a different light. Before he had been an 
illusion of a person, intangible, giving only a hint at what lay 
beneath the surface. His burp made everything change. H 
was as if the lights in the room had become brighter, more 
penetrating. There was Ambrose, sitting hunched over the 
cold glutinous remains of a fried chicken dinner, cigarette in 
his hand, eyes all red-rimmed from the grass, and I could 
feel what it was like to be Ambrose. Ambrose had suddenly 
taken form before my eyes, his burp had transmitted to me 
some indefinable nuance of what Ambrose was and what it 
was like to be Ambrose. 

I didn't like the feeling. As I stood there and watched him 
smoke and joke with the other people at the table the feeling 
began to fade and I breathed easier. All of a sudden the front 
door banged opened and in charged Gayle, drunk. 

"Woweee," she shrieked, "Am I ever shitfaced! Me and 
Eldridge went to every bar between here and Orleans and 
got served in every one of them." 

She began to dance around the house, flicking ashes on 
everyone's legs and leaving various articles of clothing in 
different rooms. Finally she stood almost naked before us 
all. She tilted her head back and let out a blood-curdling 
scream. Then, grabbing ahold of a bleary eyed, shaggy- 
looking guy, whom I took to be the mysterious Eldridge, she 
disappeared into a bedroom, closed and locked the door. 

Dead silence ensued. My God, I thought, what manner of 
girl is that? 

As if in answer, Jack in the corner with the book said 
quietly and respectfully, "Well, there's Gayle." 

I walked over to where he was sitting and said, "What's 
that supposed to mean?" 

Must that," he replied. "Gayle got home, came in the 
house, ran around taking off her clothes and flicking 
cigarette ashes on everyone's legs, screamed, grabbed 
what's his name and disappeared into the bedroom. It's 
nothing new." 

I was incredulous. "You mean she docs this every night?" 

"Well, just about. Some nights there aren't parties here 
but most nights there are," he explained. 

"Tell me more," I said. 

"Well, you see, these guys all have jobs where they don't 
have to work every day of the week so they spend a lot of 
time at the beach surfing. When it gets too dark to do that 
they come over here to drink all night. Then tomorrow they 
do the whole thing over again." 

"You mean, just like this, every night?" 

He nodded. "Just like this." 

While we were talking a fight broke out in the kitchen. 
Ambrose and someone else we couldn't see were up and 
trading punches. The idea caught on and one of the on- 
lookers turned and smacked his neighbor. He hit back and 
the riot was on. They began to turn over tables and chairs, 
throw beer cans through the windows and wreck the house. 

I made a beeline for the door. Once outside I began to walk 
away from the neighborhood as fast as I could. There was no 
meen and the roads were very dark. Scrub pines hung low 
over me as I walked along, half expecting a Black Rider to 
step out of the gloom and whisk me off to some horrible 
place. That woundn't be any worse then being back there, I 
thought. What's the house going to look like in the morning? 
What's Gayle going to look like in the morning? 

Headlights came up quickly behind me in the darkness. An 
engine growled quietly a few yards away. The car crept 
forward slowly, like a stalking animal. The hairs on the back 
of my neck began to rise slowly. Ambrose? I thought. The 

car crept forward a little more, its engine purring in the 
dark. It snarled as the driver stabbed the accelerator. 
Maybe he'll give me a ride home anyway, I thought, and 
stepped out into the middle of the road. The headlights hit 
me and a split second later the driver pushed the gas to the 
flopr. The gentle throbbing of the engine turned instantly to 
a screaming shattering howl. The rear tires spun madly, 
spattering gravel all over the bushes. The car leapt forward, 
right at me. 

I snapped. "Ambrose! Ambrose!" Choking with fright I 
dove wildly off to my right. The car zoomed by, showering 
me with gravel as it passed. My heart pounded for several 
minutes. The blood rushing in my ears sounded like a rain 
swollen river rushing over boulders. I lay there until I 
caught my breath, then got up and quickly but cautiously 
made my way out to the main road and went home. I didn't 
see Ambrose at all. 

The outside light was on when I got to the cottage. Good, I 
thought, she's home. 

She was. She was standing at the sink washing the dishes. 
I stood outside on the steps watching her for a few minutes, 
then I opened the door and walked in. 

She turned around and saw me. 

"Well, have you recovered yet?" she asked. 

"What do you mean?" I said. 

"Like, you know what I mean, man. Don't hassle me," she 

I grinned embarreddedly. Oh yeah, that. Yes, I think I'm 
all better now." 

"My goodness, you were strange for a while," she said. 
"There was something I had to tell you, though. Now, what 
was it? I think I forgot it. Ooh, I know. Jackie called. He 
wants to go surfing with you tomorrow. What are you 
laughing for?"

New England's Latest Art Premiere 

By David Williams 

BOSTON - For some people, 
going to show openings and movie 
premiers and the like gets to be 
kind of a status thing after a while. 
They'll be in polite company some 
day and a play or a movie will be 
mentioned and they immediately 
say; "Well, you know, dear, I was 
there at the opening." And right 
away everyone is obliged to coo 
"How nice." That they got ab- 
solutely nothing out of having gone 
to whatever it was they were the 
first to go to doesn't even occur to 

Now, if I wanted t^, I could get 
obnoxious about this whole thing. 
But since it was nothing more than 
dumb luck that landed me at, say, 
the N.E. premiere of Costa 
Gavras' 'Z' or Harold Prince's 
Follies', then I will keep these 
little known facts to myself and 
smile knowingly whenever I hear 
anyone playing a game of Status 
with anyone else. 

However, there is one little thing 
I would like to get stuffy about. 
Two weekends ago it was my good 
fortune to be present at the New 
England premiere of two new art 
forms, Mystery Art and Surprise 


The occasion was the weekly 'Art 
in the Park' held on the Boston 
Common and sponsored by 
Summerthing or the City of Boston 
or someone. Artists are invited to 
set up displays to try and sell to 
passersby on the Park St. end of 
the Common. I went in with two 


Not A 

Best Bet 

By Pat Suprenant 

ALBUM 1 and 2 (Atlantic) 

Loudon Wainwright Ill's two 
albums arrived together in the 
same day and that in itself was a 

His first album, naturally in 
these very camp times, is called 
Loudon Wainwright 111 Album 1. It 
blatantly displays the face of the 
artist himself as does Album 2, but 
this is where the similarities end. 

In Album 1, the sparse in- 
strumental background of 
Wainwright's guitar sleeks and 
slides capturing the liquid tones 
and moods of songs written by 
himself. His message is carried out 
in a soothing personal voice which 
is very much in the tradition of 
James Taylor and Arlo Guthrie. 
However, when one ventures into 
the second album it becomes a 
frightening nightmare. The guitar 
picking charm of the first disc 
succumbs to what sounds like a kid 
playing the instrument after his 
tenth lesson. The lyrics have 
turned into trite verbal babblings 
that lead the listener, during this 
boring mistake, into the brilliant 
conclusion that Wainwright tried 
too hard! Also missing in this 
album is the mood capturing 
quality of his voice. In fact, he too 
sounds bored and burned out about 
the whole thing. 

The only redeeming song on the 
whole album is "Old Paint", which 
incidentally, is the only one that 
was not created by Wainwright. 
This traditional folk song was 
excellently reinforced by the ad- 
ditional vocal of Kate McGarrigle 
and the harmonica of Saul Broudy. 

When considering the merit of 
the two albums, and Loudon 
Wainwright 111, all most definitely 
rate nothing more than your 
sympathy for the inability to 
create good music. It definitely 
cannot be called this year's best 

friends of mine who were 
displaying pottery and paintings. 
Right beside us was a youthful 
looking man who had a big green 
trashbag full of boxes and a couple 
of posters which he began to hang 

They read: 'Mystery Art and 
Surprise Art. "The premiere of two 
new art forms in New England.' 

They read: 'Mystery Art and 
Surprise Art. The premiere of two 
new art forms in New England,' 
and 'John Canady, scholar and 
critic for the Sunday New York 
Times says: I like Mystery Art and 
Surprise Art. I think it will sell. At 
the same time it has Oriental wit 
and charm, it is visually intriguing 
and makes a profound statement 
about contemporary society.' 

We were all a little bit intrigued, 
too. And when this man dumped 
out some shoe boxes wrapped up in 
brown paper and tied with string 
onto the group and put price tags of 
$195 on them, we were outright 

He explained for us: 'This is 
Surprise Art. You pay $195 for this 
box and take it home. When you get 
there, you can open the box and see 
what's in it.' 

Taking an identical box from 
another pile, he continued: 'Now, 
these boxes are Mystery Art. This 
sells for $1.95. When you buy 
Mystery Art you have to sign a 
condition of purchase promising 
that you will never open the box. 
You see, when you buy Mystery 
Art you are entering into the 
creative process with the artist. 

You take the box home and hang it 
up as you would any other work of 
art. Alongside it you hang the 
condition of purchase form. This 
means that as long as you own the 
box and keep it intact, you are 
becoming a part of the process by 
which the total effect is achieved.' 

The crowds were beginning to 
get larger as the morning wore on. 
The three of us sat in lawn chairs in 
the middle of the Freedom Trail 
where it runs from the State House 
to the information booth and 
listened to our neighbor trying to 
sell his wares. 

"Ladies and gentlemen, the 
premiere of two new art forms 
never before seen in our fair city. 
Mystery Art, here, and Surprise 
Art on my far left." Two boxes, 
both identical, except for the price 

tags. People would stop and listen 
to him for a few minutes and then 
walk away. One man said he could 
think of a lot better things to throw 
$195 away on and then threw $1.95 
away on Mystery Art. 

Our entrepeneur sold two of his 
Mystery Art boxes. He explained 
to those who asked that he was all 
sold out of Surprise Art. 

Five o'clock finally came and 
everyone began to pack up to 
leave. We were still confused about 
what exactly Mystery Art and 
Surprise Art were. So we walked 
up to our neighbor and asked him. 
He began to tell us about the N.E. 
premiere and all that. No, no, we 
said. What's in the box? 

Giving us a friendly con-

Summer Arts Program 

Movie Memorandum 

Jazz Age Idol: (June 28, Campus Center Auditorium » 

Starting off both summer school and the Summer Arts Program are ten 
minutes of cuts from Rudolph Valentino's "Son of the Sheik" and "Blood 
and Sand" set against the changing historic highlights of a colorful era. 
I'm No Angel: ( June 28, Campus Center Auditorium, 8: 00) 

The spotlight of this movie is on the infamous Mae West who with her 
quick wit and lines like "«oody two shoes" can almost make the first 
night on campus bearable. Definitely a must to see if there is nothing 
better to do. 
Keystone Cops: (June 28, Campus Center Auditorium, 8 00) 

People throwing and eating pie instead of shit like they do today is the 
highlight of this entertaining revival of the early movie day s featuring the 
all time favorites including the Keystone Cops. 
The General: (June 28, Campus Center Auditorium, 8:00) 

A film worth seeing more than once, it is Buster Keatonis strong story 
based on a daring Civil War raid made by a band of twenty Union men. 
David Robinson in his book "Buster Keaton" sums it up best, . . . "it is 
less the gags you remember than the image of the lonely, brave, foolish, 
beautiful little character in relentless pursuit of the two things he loves 
most. . ." 
The Strawberry Statement: (June 29, Campus Cen er Auditorium, 8:00) 

The at times boring story of college radicals actively involved in 
campus political activities and the extra curricular events that go along 
with it, something we all feel we could produce a movie about. 
(Editor's Note: All events above are free with UMass Summer Student

The paintings are by James Hendricks, a UMass faculty member, who 
uses red, yellow, and blue paint to depict abstract geological features 
such as the physical effects of wind, heat and gravity. 


The Drunkard or Fallen Saved: (July 1 - 4, Bartlett Auditorium, 8:15 

First performed in this area, this nineteenth century melodrama 
presents a uniquely American form of theater. Though The Drunkard and 
melodramas like it have fallen victim to numerous television and motion 
picture spoofs, The Masque will perform the piece in the style of the 
original - with music and a post-curtain oleo. The audience is encouraged 
to boo the villain, cheer the hero and sing along with the rag-time pianist. 
The Drunkard is fine family entertainment. Tickets are $1.50 to general 
public and free to UMass Summer students. Reserved seats may be 
obtained by calling 545-0202 or 545-2579 evenings of performance.

THURSDAY, JULY 15, 1971 

Conte and Wood Discuss Future of UMass 

(The following interview was 
taped late last month at the office 
of Cong. Silvio O. Conte, who in- 
cluded the transcript in his weekly 
"Reports to the People of Western 
Massachusetts." The Pittsfield 
Congressman's interview last 
week was with UMass President 
Robert Wood.) 

Conte: It is my pleasure to have 
with me today, my good friend Dr. 
Robert Wood, President of the 
University of Massachusetts and 
former Secretary of the Depart- 
ment of Housing and Urban 
Development. President Wood, 
welcome to my program. 

Wood: It is a pleasure to be here, 
Mr. Conte. 

Conte: We had a very interesting 
breakfast this morning with the 
Massachusetts Congressional 
Delegation. I was quite impressed 
and interested in your statement of 
the future plans of the University 
of Massachusetts and I wonder if 
we can have a little discussion here 
to tell our listening audience about 
the plans of the University. 

Wood: I was pleased to come 
down, Sil, and talk to the 
delegation about the University 
and where it's going, because this 
has been a delegation that has been 
just unanimous and dogged in its 
support of the university here. The 
people of Massachusetts ought to 
know that. 

I was this morning sharing with 
the delegation the kind of problems 
that development and the numbers 
that we face at the University now, 
and the arithmetic kind of works 
out this way. If we are going to 
keep the same number of 
youngsters in the state in the 
university in ten years, in 1980 nine 
years, now, as we have at the 
present time, the university is 
going to have to double-going to 
have to go from 25,000 to 50,000. 
And if we are going to do that, then 
we are going to have to make some 
adjustments about how much of 
this growth will be in the Amherst 
campus, what happens in Boston, 
what happens in Worcester. 

The Trustees and I think that 
probably it would be best to top off 
Amherst at 22,000 to 25,000. We 
think that's good education. We 
think that the university can get to 
be too big on one campus. We think 
that it can get beyond the capacity 
of the student to really feel that he 
has a role, an identity, and can find 
an association. We think that it is 
probably good for the lower 
Pioneer Valley. We think that after 
a period of very rapid growth, 6,000 
to 19,000 in the past 10 years, there 

has to be a kind of breathing spell 
and orderly development. 

We hope that Boston will come on 
hne at about 15,000 in the next two 
or three years-it is 4,500 now. Then 
Worcester can use this opportunity 
to build around the Medical School 
developments in health, en- 
vironment, and new education 
opportunities there that we think 
are important. 

And then, we have to do this in 
context of the private universities 
and colleges that are going to have 
to handle about 83,000 students 
somehow in the next decade. And 
the state colleges and community 
colleges are going to have to find 
ways and means of expanding to 
accommodate 100,000 students. So 
the baby boom, that began, I guess, 
with us all at the end of World War 
II, has now hit the college level. 

Conte: In regard to the private 
colleges, one of the most exciting 
things that ever happened to me 
was that last year I received an 
honorary degree at Hampshire 
College and one of my favorites of 
theirs is Frank Patterson. He has 
done a great job with that school 
and again this morning, I heard 
you speak, and he has told me a 
great deal in regards to how the 
five colleges are working together- 
the interchange of students and all. 
How is that working out? Have you 

Wood: That's been going for 
some years. It's working out with 
increasing effectiveness. About 
4,000 students last year from Mt. 
Holyoke, Amherst, Smith and the 
university, and Hampshire 
changed campuses and went to 
courses offered on other campuses 
that they couldn't get at their own. 
Now part of this is still the boy 
chasing girl, and girl chasing boy 
and I'd be the last to deny that 
powerful force in American life, or 
want to deny it. But a part of it is 
common academic planning, 
because now Mt. Holyoke, Smith 
and Amherst have enormous 
education resources, so we have 
had a new study done this spring 
and got new proposals for 
cooperation. And there is a 
traditional example to note in this. 
Frank Patterson has gone to being 
chairman of the Board of Hamp- 
shire and accepted a professorship 
at the university so that he is going 
to be in the position to think and 
work and develop the means of 
private-public development. 

Conte: I think that's great. We 
wrote to Frank and congratulated 
him the other day. I think he will be 
a great asset to the University. 

Wood: I know he will. 


Conte: You mention the baby 
boom and how the effects of the 
baby boom of World War II are 
hitting the universities. I have 
spoken to the presidents of dif- 
ferent colleges throughout the 
country and they all seem to have 
the same problem: money. What's 
the answer to all of this? 

Wood: The answer is not 
automatic, or easy, or clear, or 
instant. One of the reasons I was 
visiting with the delegation again 
this morning was to get their 
judgment. What's important to 
recognize is that three things 
happened in the 1960s. 

First, the university got caught 
up with inflation that hit us all and 
academic salaries caught up to 
about the average they should have 

Second, the expansion was 
enormous. We got a lot of capital 
outlay, debt service cost that all of 
us bear. Two million un- 
dergraduates turned into seven 
million in that period. 

And third, the cost of research 
and the cost of science and 
engineering;-the capital in- 
vestment-just got very, very high. 
When the research support from 
the federal government began to 
taper off, when we started the 
process of conversion from war to 
peace, the difficulty of the 
university not having these 
resources became acute. These 
problems are particularly acute 
for the private colleges and 
universities at this time. 

The universities have done an 
amazing job in having the support 
of their alumni and their friends. 
But I think we are going to have to 
have federal support. Whether this 
should come in terms of money 
directly to the students and then 
student chooses his college, or 
whether it should be a matter of 
institutional support is not a clear 
issue right now. That we've just got 
to work out. How one rewards 
graduate schools, private schools, 
to the small versus the large 
university that provides so much of 
the service: that's another issue. 

But 1 am hopeful, Sil, that during 
this session. Congress can come up 
with legislation that answers those 
problems and then we can begin to 
get the support. If we don't, the 
American people are going to see a 
slackening in what has been their 
persistent characteristic, their 
belief and commitment to 
education. And five, 10 years, from 
now, we are going to pay a very 
heavy price for that. 

Conte: I quite agree with you, 
and I certainly will do all I can as 
an individual here in Congress to 
see that we do get out some 
legislation this year. I think that 
time is of the essence. You know 
there is a great deal of talk. I know 
it popped up in my Committee of 
Health, Education and Welfare 
Appropriations, many, many times 
with administration witnesses in 
regards to the Yale University 
plan, the pay-as-you-earn tuition 
plan. I know that after listening to 
some of the witnesses, that some 
have reservations about this new 
program. Maybe, it is an unfair 
question because it really hasn't 
had time. We haven't had a track 
record of it to see how this is going 
to work, but do you have any 
feelings on this? 

Wood: Well, the appeal of the 
Yale plan-and it's got good appeal- 
is that if you go through university 
as great pontificators and 
credential makers of this society 
your probability of earning more 
over a period of your life is $3,000 to 
$4,000 a year than if you stop at 
high school. And there is a natural 
generational shift as the costs go 
up of: why don't you have the 
student carry this? 

Against that argument, is not 
only the argument that as much as 
education as a person can absorb 
ought to be a part of an American's 
birthright, that's what we really 
say is our obligation to our kids. On 
a couple of other points: one is it's 
hard for poor students to have 
grown up in poverty and watched 
the finance company come to 
really say that they want to 
commit themselves for a loan at a 
time when that has been the road to 
family disaster and they 
remember it. So you are likely to 
discourage people from ever ap- 
plying this way unless you're very 

Secondly, it's hard on girls; it's 
hard on women. It's asking women 
to commit themselves to a loan 
situation, when it may be what 
they do want to do is to get to June 
of their senior year and get 
married. So this program, which is 
worth looking at, works best with 
reasonably "well-to-do" kids, 
works best for young men who will 
go on and -expect to be bread 
winners. It is not an automatic, 
complete answer. 

Conte: Well, we're in conference 
right now on the Health, Education 
and Welfare Appropriations bill. 
One item, which we haven't 
reached as yet, which I hope we 
reach tonight, is that the House 
didn't put any money in for con- 

struction grants. The Senate put in 
$80 million for construction grants. 
As you know, the Administration 
has gone into a new concept of 
subsidizing for its rates to colleges 
for loans for the purpose of con- 
struction. You were Secretary of 
HUD, you had a lot to do with this, 
you have a feel for this. What do 
you think about it? Do you think 
subsidized loans will work? 

Wood: No, the problem here is 
that they will work for some in- 
stitutions, -small, private ones-in 
some ways. The problem with the 
loan business for the state 
universities is that when we have a 
major portion committed by the 
state government, a loan is no help 
to a capital outlay program. And I 
think that's one of the things that 
has made the country in the last 10 
years as it's expanded public 
facilities, it's been able to go with 
direct capital grants. The loan 
business always appears to be 
prudent, Sil, as you know from so 
many years in the Congress, 
because it keeps the president's 
total budget down. But it also 
means that you pay it back and you 
pay it back with interest, however 

Conte: I remember in the post 
office, they went into a lease-type 
post office rather than outright 
purchasing. Boy, that's coming 
home to roost now: the rent figure 
is climbing up by leaps and bounds. 

One last question. One thing that 
bothers me, is that I think maybe 
we ought to be a little more 
discriminate, a lot more of the 
students that are in college today 
should perhaps be in technical 
schools. I don't think that we are 
training enough people in the 
professions, or in the trades- 
electricians, machinists, and so on. 

Wood: Two things that it is 
important to say here. One, that is 
a kind of career that is terribly 
important and necessary to a 
society like ours, with that high 
technological component. And it's 
a career that ought to be accorded 
the respect and value that we 
really should place on it. So it's 
important to get that notion out. 
It's important to also realize that 
an educated man is no longer 
necessarily a guy who speaks 
Greek and Latin. 1 think that 
making the distinctions between 
kinds of education at the higher 
level and making the point that 
further education is going to go on 
all our lives now are the important 
things to remember. 

Conte: Dr. Wood, thank you very

Beth Publishes New Book 

The "constitutional crisis" faced by the United States today is a result 
of social problems and intellectual ferment in the half century preceding 
World War I, according to a new book by Prof. Loren P. Beth of the 
government department. 

"The Development of the American Constitution, 887-1917" traces the 
evolution of the U.S. Constitution in the 40 years between Reconstruction 
and World War I, and comments on the beginning of the urban-industrial 
age, the rise of the labor movement (the first "general" strike being in 
1877 after some railroads cut wages), and the rise of the U.S. as a world 

Published last month by Harper & Row, Prof. Beth's latest book is part 
of the New American Nation Series. 

The period of history covered includes an age of centralization, with 
power moving from localities to states to the national government, an age 
which saw authority go from the legislative to the executive branch of 
government, an age in which judicial review was increased. 

Writes Prof. Beth, "Our contemporary constitutional crisis was, then, 
foreshadowed by the evolution of the constitution from 1877 to 1917. The 
decisions made then are to a surprising degree the problems we face now. 
The nature of societies is, however, too complex for us to accuse our 
forebears casually of being wrong. Circumstances may have closed off 
desirable alternatives; hindsight is available only to those who come 
later; and even hindsight does not produce infallibility. It should, indeed, 
induce humility." 

Prof. Beth has been at UMass since 1958, teaching such courses as 
constitutional law. civil liberties, law and society, and law and the 
political process. He earned his bachelor's degree from Monmouth 
(Illinois) College, and his master's and Ph.D. degrees from the 
University of Chicago. He received F'ulbright lectureships in 1957 and 

Other books and articles written by Prof. Beth include: "The politics of 
Mis-Representation: Rural-Urban Conflict in the Florida Legislature;" 
"Politics, the Supreme Court, and the Constitution; " and "The American 
Theory of Church and State "

Stoneham: "Thought We Knew This Business" 

"We thought ve knew the food 
business," Joel Stoneham, director of 
University Food Services stated, "but 
we're buying things we've never heard 

Stoneham was referring to the menus 
planned and prepared for the 900 par- 
ticipants in the six-week teacher training 
course being offered by the Maharishi 
Mahesh Yoga in Transcendental 

No special diet is "required" in order 
to practice Transcendental Meditation, 
and the Maharishi does not feel that it is 
necessary to be a vegetarian. He does 
emphasize to his followers the necessity 
of treating one's body and mind properly. 

Although there is no established eating 
pattern, man of the Transcendental 
Meditationists naturally gravitate 
toward "eating veg," Miss Marie Cap- 
padona, assistant manager of the dining 
commons and dietition, said. 

The menus are comprised of basic 
foods and not primarily health foods, but 
they include such staples as unrefined 
flour, raw sugar, brown rice, and many 
fresh fruits and vegetables. 

"We're seeing fresh vegetables like 
we've never seen before," Miss Cap- 
padona said. For 9,000 students the 
university usually has six truckloads of 
vegetables each week. Now for only 900 
they have four trucks a week for only 900 

"They love cottage cheese," she 
continued, "and eat more in one day than 
1,800 kids do in three." 

No animal flesh is included in the 
menus planned for this conference 

sponsored by the Students International 
Meditation Society, but poultry and fish 
are served as "alternates" for those who 
choose them, she described. 

As all vegetarians, the dietary plan- 
ners for SIMS are very concerned with 
meat substitutes which provide the 
proteins necessary to build and replace 
the cells of the body. 

One of the most unusual of these 
protein foods is "tofu", a soybean curd 
which is customarily made for the 
university by a Chinese man in Boston, 
Stoneham stated. 

"Tofu" keeps only for about three to 
four days and is shipped and stored 
underwater. Miss Cappadona described 
"tofu" as looking somewhat like far- 
mer's cheese packed into squares like big 

In preparation of "tofu" dishes, it can 
be chopped up, sauteed, and used in 
casseroles like chopped beef. 

"Familia", often served as cereal for 
breakfast is another unusual dish. Miss 
Cappadona said that this is a mixture of 
raw oats, dates, and nuts. "It's a fan- 
tastic combination of sweet, sour, and 
crunchy-and very hearty" she said. 

"Tahini" is a favorite sandwich spread 
for the conferees. Somewhat like peanut 
butter, it is based on sesame seeds and is 
"quite tasty" Mrs. Cappadona com- 

Other items which commonly appear 
on the menu or in the foods are lentilSj 
bean sprouts, raw nuts, red leaf-bronze 
lettuce, wheat germ, and spices such as 
corriander, whole mustard seed, and 

Obtaining the quantities of the unusual 
foods proved to be a problem for food 
service planners, but one which they 
were willing to attempt to overcome. 

The university has reportedly been 
being pressured from students to have a 
vegetarian line included in the dining 
commons during the academic year. The 
SIMS conference has provided a learning 
opportunity and a challenge for the food 
service planners, Stoneham said, which 
they have welcomed and met. 

Stoneham hopes that the university 
food services will be able to go into a year 
long vegetarian meal plan in the fall. 
"There is a demand. It is a strong 
movement among young people," he 

There is little difference in the cost of 
the no-meat menus, Stoneham told the 
Gazette. Many of the foods required are 
unusual and so costs of obtaining them 
balances the difference in buying meat. 
One of the most difficult items for the 
university to buy in the quantity needed 
was raw sugar. All of the raw sugar 
located had been sold to refineries. 

Food Service representatives had to 
purchase the raw sugar while it was still 
at sea enroute to the U.S. They had 
UMass trucks to meet the ship when it

Tentative OK Given For N. Pleasant By-Pass 

Tenative approval by the State 
Department of Public Works of the 
Tillson farm-railbed by-pass was 
given yesterday after a meeting in 
Boston between members of the 
Amherst Traffic Circulation 
Committee and DPW officials. 

The proposed by-pass now 
awaits approval at the town 

The Traffic Circulation Com- 
mittee has been studying the 
traffic patterns and problems for 
more than eight months. With the 
help of a consultant, this road was 
chosen several weeks ago as the 
route which would best serve 

The objectives of building the 
new road are threefold. It will 
provide a connector between North 

.Amherst and Amherst when North 
Pleasant Street through campus is 
closed to vehicular traffic. 

The new road is also expected to 
disperse traffic grom the center of 
Amherst and separate local traffic 
from university commuters. 

The planned road will begin at 
Route 116 South of Meadow Street 
and run east connecting with East 
Pleasant near the intersection of 
Eastman Lane. 

From there it will go across 
Tillson Farm and swing south 
parallel to the railbed and them out 
to Main Street. 

The road will be financed in part 
by the state DPW. The remainder 
will come from federal sources. 
State DPW officials do not an- 
ticipate any problems obtaining 

Women Set Goals 
At National Caucus 

The newly-formed National 
Women's Political Caucus held its 
first press conference the other 
day in Washington and vowed to 
use women's 53 percent voting 
majority to change the nation's 
male-dominated power structure. 

More than 300 women from 26 
states met here to organize the 
Caucus, and the membership list 
reads like Who's Who of American 
Women's Liberation. 

Rep. Bella Abzug (D-N.Y.) said 
the Caucus will encourage support 
for campaigns of women can- 
didates-Federal, state and local- 
who declare themselves ready to 
fight for the needs and rights of 
women and all under-represented 

"Women are going to take 
control of their own lives by taking 
political power," she said. 

The women adopted a platform 
caUing for passage of the Equal 
Rights Amendment, immediate US 
withdrawal from Indochina, an end 
to discrimination against women, 
and families headed by welfare 
mothers and other women fair 
treatment of working wome n, and 

repeal of laws that restrict a 
woman's right to decide her own 
reproduction and sexual life. 

Rep. Shirley Chisholm (D-N.Y.) 
promised the Organization would 
cross party lines or work outside 
formal political parties, fight 
candidates who opposed women's 
rights, register women voters, and 
challenge delegations at the 
national conventions. 

The National Organization plans 
'■'milar caucuses at the state level. 

this federal support, Nathaniel 
Reed member of the Traffic Cir- 
culation Committee and the School 
Committee, said last night. 

"We only hope that the town 
meeting will support it," Reed 
said. When North Pleasant Street 
will be closed is also a big con- 
sideration for the town, Reed 

The DPW divided the con- 
struction of the road into three 
phases. Officials estimated ap- 
proximately eight years before the 
highway is completed. 

The first phase will involve the 
connection of North Pleasant 
Street with East Pleasant Street 
and consequently provide a con- 
nector for residents of North 

They estimate this can be ef- 
fected within two years. 

The intersection with Route 116 
and the extention of Com- 
monwealth Ave. and roads in the 
university to phase one would be 
the second step. Four to five years 
is the estimated time for com- 

The final section across Tillson 
Farm to Main Street will then be 
constructed. This portion of road 
will disperse traffic from the 
center of town and relieve 
university commuters of the 
headaches of fighting local traffic, 
the consultant said. 

Reed siggested that pehaps the 
town might agree to close North 
Pleasant Street after the first 
phase of the road, but not giving up 
title to the road until the entire 
Tillson farm route was built "this 

would cut our trump card in half," 
he said. He stated that the DPW 
justified the length of time alloted 
for the road as necessary for 
planning, design, paper work and 
study. There may be financial 
reasons for the time also, Reed 

The Amherst Traffic Circulation 
Committee was set up by town 
meeting action in October, 1970 to 
find an alternative to the road 
originally planned by the DPW 
which is known as "The Jughan- 

Those serving on the committee 
are Mrs. Nancy Eddy, chairman; 
Jerome King, secretary; David 
Elder; John M. Foster, Stephen 
Keedy; J. Jackson Littlefield, 

director of planning at the 
university; Nathaniel Reed; 
Robert B. Whitney; and Jack Wolf. 

The two and a half million as 
estimated by the consultant was 
realistic, not including land 
takings. Reed commented. 

William Atkins, school com- 
mittee member and town meeting 
member, said he would not favor 
closing North Pleasant Street until 
all phases of the road are com- 
plete. He also noted there are 
expenditures that the town must 
make in improving East Pleasant 
Street for the proposed use. 

"We're elated at having the 
DPW approve our plan," Reed 
declared. "I don't think this road 
will cost the town a dime."

The Summer Statesman is the summer school newspaper of the 
University. The staff is responsible for its content and no faculty 
members or administration read it for accuracy or approval prior to its

Shuffle Should 
Pay Off 

The reshuffling of the Student Activities Office should 
)ay off in the long run, not only because functions have 
)ecome more clearly delineated, but also because at long 
ast someone has taken a hard look at the University's life 
)rocesses and decided they could stand to be changed. 

This, we feel, is a very healthy sign. A system which is 
ible to examine itself and decide that something could be 
lone better, and is able to make changes, is one that is 
houghful and understanding. The University, however, 
las often been accused of being inefficient and blundering 
)y many. The fact that the University is willing to shift a 
ittle is proof positive that it isn't as impersonal and stupid 
IS some would have you believe. 

More Streets And Roads 

Who's Who 

The first phase of reorganization of the Office of Student Activities has 
been completed. The new structure was initiated by a joint Student Af- 
fairs and Student Senate Reorganization Commission following lengthy 
deliberation with students, faculty and staff. 

Initial appointments are being made on an acting basis pending further 

Under the reorganization plan the following will report directly to the 
Vice-Chancellor for Student Affairs: 

The Director of Security, William Dye, who is responsible for the 
supervision of the campus police, security guards and traffic and parking 

The Director of the Campus Center-Student Union Complex, Gerald 
Scanlon, who is responsible for the Campus Center, the Student Union and 
student Activities. 

The Director of Human Services, Dr. Robert Gage, who is responsible 
for the services offered by the Infirmary, Mental Health, Psychological 
Counseling, Career Counseling and Placement, and Community 
Development and Human Relations. 

The Dean of Admissions and Financial Aid, William Tunis, who is 
responsible for Undergraduate Admissions, Financial Aid, Transfer 
Affairs, and the Registrar's Office. It is important to note that the Office 
of Financial Aid and Placement has been split, with the Financial Aid 
component reporting to the Dean of Admissions and the Placement 
component, reoriented to career counseling, reporting to the Director of 
Human Services. 

The Directors of Security, Campus Center, Human Services, and the 
Dean of Admissions constitute an Operations Council which will meet at 
frequent intervals with the Vice-Chancellor for Student Affairs in order 
lo effect closer coordination of services, communications and planning. 
In addition to the existi. ^ Student Union Governing Board and the 
Student Advisory Health Council, Student Advisory Councils will be 
established for the University Security operations and the Admissions 
and Financial Aid Office. 

The residence halls have been separated into five areas, each headed 
by an Area Director and/or Master, with decentralized budgeting, 
management, academic and non-academic program functions. These 
are: Southwest Residential College, John Hunt; Orchard Hill Residential 
College, Leon Barron and James West; Sylvan Residential Area, Thomas 
Trotman; Central Residential Area, Marjory Lenn; and Northeast 
Residential Area, Stephen Dimock. The Associate Dean of Students 
Office is assuming responsibility for the Non-resident Students, Com- 
muters, Fraternities, and Sororities. The heads of these areas will con- 
stitute the Area Directors Council which will meet at frequent intervals to 
discuss common problems. They will also meet with the Vice-Chancellor 
for Student Affairs and the Operations Council from time to Ume. It is 
also planned to establish a Student Advisory Panel to the Area Directors 

Each residential area will have to share a Business Manager who will 
be responsible for the budget, housing, maintenance, inventory and 
general management functions; an Academic and/or Program Officer 
who will direct and coordinate educational programs, cultural programs, 
and other special programs; and a Student Affairs Officer who will be 
responsible for the coordination of the heads of residence, counselors, 
residence hall security, residence hall parking, residence hall and dining 
commons exemptions, and staff training programs. A unique feature of 
this organizational structure is that the proposed area business managers 
will report on a day-to-day basis to the Area Director or Master and yet 
have a line reporting responsibility to the Vice-Chancellor for Ad- 
ministrative Services. The Academic and/or Program officers will 
report on a day-to-day basis to the appropriate Master or Area Director 
and yet have a line reporting responsibility to the Vice-Chancellor for 
Academic Affairs. 

In case of the Campus Center, the Manager who is responsible for the 
various operations conducted within the Center will report to the Vice- 
Chancellor for Administrative Services. However, on a day-to-day basis, 
he will be responsible for providing the operations support required by 
the Center's overall programs which is the responsibility of the Director. 
The immediate staff of the Office of the Vice-Chancellor for Student 
Affairs will be composed of two distinct components. One will serve a 
planning, environmental concerns function and the other an operational 
coordinating function. The functions and staff of this central office will be 
detailed later. 

When you drive up 91, you are driving on a very 
small part of the National System of Interstate and 
Defense Highways. This cancerous growth of concrete 
infects the whole country. 35,000 miles of the planned 
41,000 have been completed since 1956, at a cost of over 
$200 billion. Current appropriations are for $14.2 
billion more to finish by 1976. Originally we thought we 
would need the roads to escape The Bomb; can't you 
see the population of Boston heading for safety in the 

Anyhow, the expressways were built. For in- 
terstates, the federal government pays 90% of the 
cost, states pay 10%. Foi prJTT.ary and secondary 
roads, the split is 50/50, but beginning in 1974 it is to be 
70/30. Altogether, we've built enough roads to com- 
pletely cover Massachusetts, New Hampshire, 
Vermont, Rhode Island, Connecticut and Delaware. 
And we're still going. The system was established not 
only to build roads, but also to see that there would 
always be money to continue bulldozing. Money 
comes mostly from "user" taxes that we all pay: 4c 
per gallon on gasoline, 6C per gallon on lubricating oil, 
7% of the wholesale price of a new car, 10% of the 
wholesale price of a new truck, bus or trailer, 10« per 
pound on tires and tubes, 50 per pound on tread rub- 
ber, and a heavy truck fee. This money goes into the 
Highway Trust Fund; until very recently, and ex- 
ceptions are still minor, every penny had to be spent 
on building highways or invested in order to make 
more money which also had to be spent on building 
roads. Period. It's not hard to imagine why, with all 
this money just begging to be "used," there is terrific 
pressure to cover the whole country with concrete and 
asphalt ribbons. 

But while the government has been pouring con- 
crete for the willing and the unwilling alike, and also 
subsidizing airlines $1.2 billion a year (airlines don't 
don't build those airports), it has been letting the 

railroads commit suicide. Until the end of World War 
II, we had good passenger service. Since then, 
management has done everything it can to get rid of 
passengers, from leaving bathrooms filthy to can- 
celling mail contracts so that they could later claim 
the route was unprofitable. A little effort brings 
profits: Penn Central made $10 million in surplus last 
year on the Washington-New York run, largely 
because of the new, high-speed Metroliner. But 
basically the railroads aren't interested in humans. 

Trains are a great way to move people. One track 
can carry 80,000 people per hour, as compared to a 
maximum of 3,600 for each traffic lane. Tracks cost 
less to builder and environment. Engines can be less 
polluting. And with 24 deaths a year, trains are the 
safest way to travel. 

So, theoretically, the government was going to 
rescue passenger service. Amtrak, the government- 
subsidized rail service, was given the miserly amount 
of $340 million (about the cost of 12 miles of urban 
expressway) for five years to get passenger service 
back. Not only back, but making a profit. Why? High- 
ways, airports, and the Post Office don't make profits. 
But railroads are expected to. So Amtrak is insisting 
that regional or state authorities pledge 2/3 of the 
expected deficit for every line they request. Amtrak 
cut non-commuter service to half what is now 
available. Some states lost all passenger service; 
Montana lost 75% until Mansfield screamed. With 
infrequent service on the routes that are operating, 
even people who would like to ride trains will probably 
find them too inconvenient to bother with. Is this any 
way to run a railroad?

5,(X)0 Unemployed 

5000-Five thousand unemployed 
in the Amherst, Northampton and 
surrounding areas. This is the 
estimate, probably conservative, 
given by the Northampton 
Unemployment Office. This 
tremendous number of primarily 
youthful workers must now be 
experiencing as the summer drags 
on, that poverty of spirit that 
comes from inactivity, that 
directionless feeling that embitters 
minds against society, and 
eventually turns inward in the 
forms of drug abuse and excessive 

The recession that is upon us and 
all its related problems cannot be 
stemmed easily on any level, 
national or local. However, a 
number of unemployed individuals 
in the area are attempting the 
development of unemployment 
collectives or support groups to 
make survival easier this summer 

and if necessary, through the 
coming year, until the recession 
lifts. We are different from other 
labor boards in that we will be 
developing a support group 
philosophy, and will be referring 
people to the many collectives 
already established in the area and 
acquainting them with the 
resources these groups have to 
offer. For instance, the PCU- 
People's Community Union of 
Amherst is offering a fine food 
cooperative this summer. Also, we 
will be actively seeking even the 
smallest jobs door to door and as 
the number of jobs increase we will 
be gathering the unemployed 
together into crews, cataloguing 
jobs and matching them to the 
catalogued skills of our workers. In 
addition, we will have the benefit of 
a Consumer Consultant to aid 
participants in economical sur- 

Our success is contingent upon 
the many administrators, 
professors and others in the 
University Community and those 
in the outside community who own 
homes, cars, etc. They must 
consider now whether their home 
needs painting or their car needs 
washing or even tuning. We need 
an office with a phone (this sum- 
mer there are several offices on 
campus not in use). We need an 
initial grant or donation to staff an 
office and have representatives in

Art Exhibit And Sale 


uiN, . wftbIT I 

An exhibition and sale of original graphic art by 
contemporary and old master artists arranged by the 
Ferdinand Roten Galleries of Baltimore, Maryland 
will be held on Thursday, July 29, 1971 in the Campus 
Center Concourse 2. The exhibition will be on display 
from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. 

Included in the exhibition will be over 1,000 original 
etchings, lithographs, and woodcuts by artists such as 
Picasso, Chagall, Miro, Goya, Renoir, Roualt, 
Kollwitz, and many others including contemporary 
United States, European and Japanese print makers. 
Prices range from $5.00 to $1,000 with the majority 
price under $100. 

A well qualified representative of the Roten 
Galleries will be present at the exhibit to answer any 
questions the public may have regarding graphic art 
and printmaking. 

Roten Galleries 

For almost forty years, Ferdinand Roten Galleries 
Inc. of Baltimore, Maryland has pioneered in bringing 
art to university and community museums throughout 
the nation. 

The Gallery seeks to extend art education by 
providing students and other interested groups with 
an opportunity to get acquainted with a variety of fine 
graphics. Last year, Roten representatives visited 
over 1,000 schools holding "One Day Exhibition and 
Sale" events. In addition, the Gallery sent more than 
^00 special exhibitions to art centers museums, and 

universities all over the country. 

By selling originals at prices that students can af- 
ford Ferdinand Roten Galleries has been able to in- 
troduce young people to the joys of collecting. Original 
prints start at $5.00. Most are priced under $100.00 
although it is possible to spend thousands for an 
unusually rare and important print. 

The Roten Galleries collection of original graphics 
include a broad range of artistic styles and per- 
sonalities. Included are manuscripts, incunabula, as 
well as works by Piranesi, Goya, Daumier, Renoir, 
Chagall, Miro, Wunderlich, Anuskiewicz, Matisse, 
Kollwitz and Roualt. 

The Galleries were founded in 1932 by Ferdinand 
Roten. Mr. Roten arrived in the U.S. in the early 20's 
and was so successful at selling the print collections 
consigned to him by needy immigrant friends that he 
began to import and sell the works of key ex- 
pressionist— Kirchner, Nolde, and Kaethe Kollwitz. 

By the early 30's Roten's clientele had grown to 
include major museums and serious collectors. In 1932 
he opened a print and framing shop in Baltimore 

Among the now famous artists whom Roten helped 
to introduce to the American public is Kaethe 
Kollwitz. In 1933 the Galleries arrange the first 
American museum exhibition of her works at the 
Worcester Museum in Mass.

Antonionis Blow Up 
Well Knit Structure 


When BLOW-UP first appeared 
five years ago, the film's 
remarkable popularity did not 
prevent more than a few observers 
from leveling two wrong-headed 
criticisms at it-that the film was a 
pointless, decadent meander 
through some of London's more 
modish quarters and that it failed 
to exhibit even the slightest 
development or conflict of 
character. Hopefully such notions 
no longer persist since BLOW-UP 
is, in fact, an extraordinarily well- 
knit structure and its lack of 
character conflict is precisely to 
the point of the film. 

Director Antonioni achieved 
spectacular photographic com- 
positions and his controlled use of 
color led him even to paint the 
grass in a park a brighter shade of 
green. Yet upon review one is hard 
put to find a single gratuitous 
camera shot. The sound track 
abounds in key, ambiguous noises 
crucial to the revelation of the plot. 
Indeed the highly controlled nature 
of the cinematic environment is an 
ironic comment on what tran- 

The story concerns the 
metaphysical crisis of a London 
fashion photographer. From the 
outset we are presented with what 
is to be a continuing confusion of 
illusion with reality. Things turn 
out to be their opposites. A group of 
raucous, gambolling mimes turn 
out to be collecting for some 
worthy cause. A shabby, cheerless 
young man (David Hemmings) 
emerges from a flop house and gets 
into his Rolls Royce. The vicarious 
experience of photographing a 
model substitutes for actual sexual 
fulfillment. These are the 
manifestations of a philosophical 
malaise that took two centuries to 
filter down to common society- 
that the extinction of external 
values threatens the very 
existence of objectifiable reality. 
When all categories of 
meaningful interpretation are held 
to be within man, they soon take on 
a capricious, aribitrary air. This is 
spelled out when the artist friend 
tells the photographer (with whom 
the artist's wife secretly sleeps) 
that his abstract paintings are 
created with nothing in mind-only 
afterward does the beholder inject 
his own meaning by shaping the 
hodgepodge according to what he 
arbitrarily perceives. In a society 
where nothing is authentically 
important, boredom threatens, and 
illusory values temporarily 
maintained by collective 
suspension of disbelief are sought. 
Thus a world arises where 
campy, impulsive group values 
dominate. A useless airplane 
propellor becomes an object d'art. 
A smashed guitar at a Yardbirds' 
concert becomes, within the 
context of the screaming groupies, 
sufficiently valuable to be 
viciously fought over, only to fall to 
the ground in insignificance once 
out on the street. We see Hem-

The University Goes On? 


Upon the completion of the final draft 
of the University Senate Constitution, 
which was, in effect, the final draft 
report of the Joint Commission on 
Campus Governance, there was an air of 
defeatism within the Commission. We 
had often felt somewhat less than op- 
timistic during the course of our 
deliberations, and especially from about 
June of 1970 on, due to factors such as 
ineffective leadership within the Com- 
mission (at one point the original 
Chairman neglected to call a meeting for 
a period of over a month) and a general 
belief that administrative interest in the 
project had either waned or had turned to 
outright opposition, thus rendering our 
task completely hopeless, for without 
substantial and effective administrative 
support the odds against wide-reaching 
change were indeed remote. Never- 
theless, we finished our Report and 
predicted, within the Commission, what 
we each believed the outcome would be: 
privately the Commission was over- 
whelmingly of the opinion that the Report 
would be defeated by one or more con- 
.stiluencies, even though each member 
supported the document which had been 

The Report was issued the last week in 
March and a public hearing was held the 
first week in April, 1971. The hearing was 
a disappointment to the Commission, a 
total of perhaps fifteen persons were in 
attendance, the majority of which were 
students. The hearing was intriguing, 
however, for most of the Commission 
members at least in that it was here that 
son:e of the linos were drawn and the 
tone set for the debate which was to 
follow in the various Senates. An ex- 
cellent rendition of the empire-building 
academic baron was given by the Dean of 
the Graduate School, Dr. Mortimer H. 
Appley, who believed in cooperation, but 
cooperation short of actually compelling 
the Graduate .school to in some way be 
subordinate to the general academic 
community like every other division on 
this campus. During his fantastic display 
of disjunctive debate (he was later to 
state, on the floor of the Faculty Senate, 
that he agreed with all those who debated 
against the Report, even though there 
were instances of negative debate) and 
deliberate over-kill the good Dean 
bluntly stated that he would not work for 
a university where such a system of 
governance was practiced (implying that 
he would resign). This was merely a 
preview of the type of detached and petty 
debate which was to be voiced later on, 
however, certain Commission members 
wi-re heartened and even more deter- 
mined to get the University Senate 
system instituted after listening to Dean 
Appley and taking him at his word. 

Shortly after the hearing the Student 
Senate discussed the Report with the 
Commission at some length. The 
discussion was probing and admittedly 
not overwhelmingly positive in tone, but 

the questions and comments were, for 
the most part, in reference to substantive 
points of the system itself and not in 
negation of the concept which the Report 
represented. Many in the Student Senate 
thought that the power ratios should be 
altered in many areas so that students 
would exercise more control or in- 
fluence. This was the kind of debate the 
Commission had expected, and the type 
of comments which the Commission 
considered germaine and indeed quite 
apropos for the topic. We had expected 
strong thrusts from each constituency for 
increased representation and had vowed 
to review this very important aspect 
within the Commission one last time 
before issuing the final Report during the 
week of April 15. 

The debate in the Faculty Senate was 
not what the Commission had expected. 
We had expected negative debate on 
various aspects of the proposed system, 
but the Faculty Senators instead debated 
the basic philosophy underlying the 
Report. The Faculty Senate was 
generally negative in tone and exhibited 
a basic shift away from the position 
many had thought it held (the position 
that shared authority and responsibility 
could be accepted with adequate 
safeguards) to a position which em- 
braced the supposition that the present 
arrangements were equitable except that 
increased communication was 
necessary. Needless to say, the Com- 
mission was genuinely surprised and 
even incensed by the backhanded and 
often shallow debate offered in the 
Faculty Senate. Professor David Booth 
(now. for some unexplainable reason, 
presiding officer of the Faculty Senate) 
based his opposition on the theory that 
the Constitution was poorly written, 
while other Senators held that they were 
being railroaded and did not have 
adequate time to consider the document 
prior to formal consideration by the 
various constituencies which was 
scheduled for April 30 (fully three weeks 

A salient feature of the Faculty Senate 
debate was that it was dominated by 
members of the Faculty Group for 
Academic Freedom (affectionately 
referred to as the Freedom Riders or as 
Fagfaff) who had been planning a 
counter-offensive to the Report as far 
back as the summer of 1970. Apparently 
Fagfaff could not fathom the Com- 
mission's not having heeded their ob- 
jections to the University Senate concept 
which were voiced to the Commission in 
a meeting held July 20. 1970 with 
Professors Richardson, Hollander, 
Lewy. Brogan, and Anthony speaking for 
Fagfaff. Fagfaff members obviously do 
not realize the absurdity with which they 
are viewed by other members of the 
academic community (including faculty, 
administrators, and students) mainly 
due to their fanatic and reactionary 
views of educational philosophy and 
University politics. What is interesting is 

the unwillingness of the faculty, 
especially within the Faculty Senate, to 
openly confront this 19th Century 
philosophy and those who endorse it. 

The only words to describe the Com- 
mission members after the Faculty 
Senate debacle are glum and angered. 
The Graduate Student Senate discussed 
the Report the following week in much 
the same manner as the Student Senate 
(pushing for increased influence) and the 
Commission convened to draft its final 
Report. The Commission was angered by 
the Faculty Senate and the Final Report, 
while a mere half page in length, did not 
mince words and implied clearly that the 
Faculty Senate was the body that ad- 
ministered the coup-de-grace to the 
Report of the Joint Commission on 
Campus Governance. 

After some degree of reasoned 
reflection on the whole matter, this 
author would like to offer some basic 
reasons for the ultimate stagnation of an 
exciting and sound proposal on campus 
governance. In one respect the Com- 
mission found itself in the position of 
having to create a document which had to 
be palatable to all but far-reaching 
enough to be a meaningful departure 
from past traditions. This was almost a 
built-in defect in that the proposed 
system would have to reflect existing 
power relationships merely in order to be 
instituted. The major blame for the ^ 
defeat of the Report, however, must be 
borne by the faculty and their elected 
representatives, the Faculty Senate, who 
refused to debate the proposal on its 
relative merits focusing rather on 
spurious issues such as timing and minor 
technical details which could have been 
edited out. The Commission, and most 
observers, viewed the debate as a con- 
venient cover for the more serious 
substantive objections held by the 

The reasons for real faculty opposition 
are numerous, but, above all the major 
reason is that faculty retain their idea of 
the necessity of their being an oligarchy 
which controls the University, especially 
the academic aspects. Many faculty 
apparently see no room for sharing this 
authority, or, indeed, responsibility. But 
the reasons for these feelings are not 
simple nor can they be unilaterally ap- 
plied, for the University is many dif- 
ferent things for different faculty 
members. For some the University 
represents a place where they can feel as 
if they have real power over an aspect of 
American Life (namely, higher 
education). For some the University 
represents a constant which has ground- 
rules which they successfully mastered, 
thus leading to their ultimate success. To 
some the University is the enforcer and 
re-inforcer of conventional wisdom, 
established culture, traditional 
academics, and even the American 
(civilized) way of life. The University is 
seen as the certifier and the rewarder for 
excellence and the encourager of ac- 

cepted behavior patterns. Any sub- 
stantive tamperings with the governance 
of such an institution could ( and in the 
case of the Campus Governance Report, 
would) render it more susceptible to 
change. And, to reactionary 
academicians, change is a rejection of 
the established norms which they held. 
(The outstanding verification of this 
hypothesis is the constant attacks on the 
School of Education within the Faculty 
Senate, including reports on that School 
which exhibit unrestrained bias.) 

The Report was not unopposed on the 
left either. Those who wished the Com- 
mission to go far toward completely 
democratizing the University and 
forever removing the arbitrary distinc- 
tions between members of the academic 
community were sorely disappointed. 
But, their disappointment was generally 
tempered by an understanding of the 
political realities existant at this 
University and others. Many radicals 
understood that by encouraging the 
concept of change, and creating a system 
under which it could occur, the Com- 
mission was taking a real step in the 
direction of demythologizing the 
University and was not merely endorsing 
minor reform. 

The Commission was not blameless 
either, but made some judgements which 
are now questionable. It certainly should 
have encouraged wider and earlier 
discussion of the basic philosophy of the 
Report which was clearly outlined in the 
First Interim Report which was issued in 
May of 1970. The Chancellor should have 
been used more effectively (he was in 
support of the Report but the Com- 
mission felt it politically sound for him to 
exercise decisive influence after the 
Final Report was before the various 

Taken as a whole, most observers 
agree that the Constitution could have 
been passed by the Student Senate and 
the Graduate Student Senate and both 
student constituencies, but would have 
failed the faculty and Faculty Senate. 
The Commission, by general concensus 
(there was never a vote in the Com- 
mission, only concensus), decided that to 
push the issue to a vote would further 
polarize the University and would thus be 
counter-productive. This participant was 
not in full agreement then, and indeed 
believes now, that the issue should have 
been put to a vote thus proving decisively 
where the stumbling block to reform, 
innovation, and academic ex- 
perimentation lies. 

Hopefully the issue will be raised again 
in the fall of 1971. This author will no 
longer be present at the University, to the 
delight (or mild appreciation) of certain 
members of Fagfaff. but the liberal and 
young faculty may refute the oligar- 
chical rulers and lead the University 
toward a more enlightened view of itself 
and the members of its vast and varied

Walk, Don't Run 

Recently the VILLAGE VOICE procured a copy of a long 
ivhisperea-aboui secret report commissioned by the Ford 
Foundation concerning drug abuse and addiction in the 
United States. To no one's surprise it sharply opposes 
Dresent governmental policies of treating drug users as 
criminals, and calls for radical changes in these and 
v^irtually all other policies concerned with drug abuse. 

The report, although it has not been made officially 
3ublic as yet, has reached the hands of hundreds of in- 
fluential policy makers throughout the country, according 
,0 Mitchell S. Svirdoff Ford Foundation vice president for 
lational affairs and former head of New York City's 
Human Resources Administration. The report was for- 
mulated after a six month study by a team of pnvate 
consultants headed by Patricia M. Wald of the Center for 
Law and Social Policy and Peter Barton Hutt who has been 
appointed as a general counsel to the Food and Drug 

The report states the "all segments of societv will 
continue to be exposed to a myriad of drugs in the future, 
and that society must learn to cope with these chemicals 
as part of everyday life." It adds "present national policy- 
which singles out particular drugs and makes their illegal 
position a crime-should be changed for very empirical 
reasons. We believe that the individual and social harm 
accomplished by imposing sanctions on drug users far 
9Utstrips the benefits of this approach (which) has created 
vvidespread disrespect for the drug laws, has possibly 
done more to encourage than to discourage illegal drug 
jse, has undercut bona fide education efforts,... and has 
deterred drug users from seeking serious help." 

The authors, however, make these clear distinctions: 
"Eliminating criminal penalties for possession for per- 
sonal use would neither legalize a particular drug or 
permit its use. Law enforcement efforts would and in our 
apinion should remain subject to confiscation wherever 

On pot, after stating once again that "there is little 
present evidence that marijuana causes physical harm," 
they say that "the real issue on marijuana appears to be 
not whether it causes mild physical damage, out whether 
it has already spread so widely that like alcohol, the social 
costs of efforts to prohibit it exceed the physical costs that 
would be incurrea by eliminating penalties for, or even 
legalizing its use." 

These and the other findings in the report are not 
remarkably new or original ideas. What is especially 
significant here, though, is that fact that some reasonably 
sophisticated and " ^ectable people have decided to 
transcend the irrationality and hypocrisy concerning 
drugs in this country, and deal with the problems 
realistically and effectively.

Bicycle Club 

What To Look For In A Bike 

Because bicycles and bicycling are becoming so 
popular, the recommendations of the American Youth 
Hostels (A.Y.H., 20 West 17th St.. New York, N.Y^ 
10011) concerning touring bicycles and equipment 
would be useful for anyone who is interested in getting 
involved in this ecologically sound sport. 

The specific bicycle type you may want depends on 
what you're planning to use it for. For just around 
campus and town, almost any type will serve. Even 
for short trips within the 5-college area, the bicycle 
type isn't crucial. But if you might want to do some 
day touring or simply longer distances, but especially 
for longer overnight or real distance tours, the A.Y.H. 
recommendations should be followed-they've had 
many years experience in bicycling and their con- 
clusions distill much experience. 

They mention in the 1971-72 A.Y.H. Hostel Guide and 
Handbook four types of bicycles; Racing, Club, 
Roadster, and Balloon tire types. They don't recom- 
mend the Racing (too specialized) nor the balloon tire 
type (not flexible enough-this is generally the type 
kids have). They say the Roadster type (30-40 lbs. 
leather or plastic spring saddle, 26"x 1 1/4" or 1 3/8" 
tube type tires at pressures of 50-70 p.s.i., 3 speed 
internal hub gear, front and rear rim brakes, flat or 
slightly upturned handle bars 16" to 18" wide) is 
acceptable but that with experience you'll probably 
want to move to a Club machine. The Club or sports- 
touring type (25-30 lbs., unsprung leather saddle, 
clincher rim or light sports tire with tubes 26" or 27" x 
1 1/4" at 70-90 p.s.i. pressure, 8-15 speed derailleur 
gears, front and rear center pull rim brakes, dropped 
handle bars 15" to 16" wide with 4" to 5" drops and all 
metal pedals; $75-$130) is that funny skinny kind you 
see all over the place now and which combines the 
energy saving aspects of the racing bike with a 
somewhat sturdier frame for heavier loads and is less 
expensive than the racing type. With the increasing 
popularity of bicycling, manufacturers have come out 

with all sorts of models, and the categories A.Y.H. 
mentions have become blurred somewhat; when 
buying, look for the features mentioned since the 
names or categories aren't sharply defined. When 
buying, A.Y.H. recommends that when you stand flat- 
footed astride the bike, if you can't lift the bike more 
than an inch off the ground (while you're astrike the 
frame, not the saddle, you have the right size frame. It 
may seem awkward, but remember, you'll be on the 
bike most of the time and the frame size is important. 
They also recommend that everyone get the "men's" 
style, since the lack of an upper crossbar in the 
"women's" frame makes it less structurally sound. 

The following are the A.Y.H. suggested adjustments 
once you get the bike: 

Sit squarely on the saddle; at the correct height, 
your foot should be fully extended when your heel 
rests on the pedal at its lowest point. Adjust the height 
so this happens. 

The tip of the saddle should be adjusted forward or 
backwards till it is directly over the crank shaft or less 
than two inches behind it. 

The saddle should be horizontal or tipped very 
slightly forward for best results. 

The handlebars are adjusted so that the top of the 
center post is the same height as the correctly ad- 
justed saddle. 

If you're planning to cycle in New England or 
abroad, joining American Youth Hostels would be a 
good idea. Hostels are cheap and clean places to stay 
and while they are fairly plentiful in the Northeast 
(less common in most other areas of the U.S.) they are 
very common in Europe (where the movement 
started) and even in Africa, Asia, and South America. 
Membership is as follows: Youth (under 18) is 
$5/ycar, Senior Youth (18-20 years) is $8/year, and 
Adult (21 years up) is $10/year.

Hamp School Committee 
OK's Claude Brown Book 

The Northampton School 
Committee has approved the 
description of a Black literature 
course in the high school for this 
September and included in its 
books by Claude Brown. 

Brown's portrayal of ghetto life 
in "Manchild in the Promised 
Land" was the subject of con- 
troversy among school officials 
and Northampton Police Chief 
.James J. Whalen after he ordered 
the book removed from the high 
school and destroyed. 

According to the Black literature 
course description, which was 
recommended by the teachers sub- 
committee and voted by the full 
board Monday, the course will 
offer early selections of poetry and 
autobiography to familiarize the 
students with the cultural heritage 
of slavery. Themes on oppression, 
emasculation, the struggle to be an 
individual and search for ones' 
identity will be explored in the 
writings of Afro-American 

Among books to be read will be 
books "written in the .realistic, 
everyday language of the ghetto 
which might be unacceptable to 
some readers," the committee 
report read. 

Other authors besides Brown 
who will be read in the course this 
fall are P'rederick Douglass, 
W.E.B.DuBois, Langston Hughes, 
Richard Wright, James Baldwin, 
Claude Brown, Ralph Ellison and 
Malcolm X. 

At the time of the book con- 
troversy in May, Chief Whalen 
contended that the 429-page book 
contained 387 obscene words or 
phrases and said he would press 
charges against those responsible 
for introducing the work into the 
school, unless they destroyed the 

Northampton School Committee 
members unanimously voted to 
accept the report of a media sub- 
committee which endorsed the 
book on its literary and social 


After the decision was made to 
put the book back on the shelves. 
Chief Whalen refused to comment 
to the press whether he plans any 
further action. He could not be 
reached to comment today as he

weeks," Officer Joseph Beringer

Cotton Blues Band To Perform 

Whenever people involved in 
rock music mention Chicago Blues, 
their thoughts seem immediately 
to stray to Paul Butterfield. But to 
really get into the blues you need a 
master, like the man who served as 
Butterfield's teacher for two years- 
James Cotton. 

Cotton was a student of the late 
Sonny Boy Williamson. "I got it 
into my head that I was going to 
play with Sonny-didn't know how 
or when. I was just going to do it," 
Cotton recalls. When his parents 
gave him $3.00 to go work in the 
cotton fields, nine-year-old James 
pocketed it for runaway money and 
took off for Arkansas to find Sonny 

"I found him all right and then I 
told him I didn't have any folks so 
he'd keep me around." Kept 
around he was, as a member of 
Sonny Boy's family and as general 
mascot to Williamson's band. 
James, of course, learned harp 
from Sonny Boy and was oc- 
casionally permitted to play with 
the group. 

Following his initial instruction, 
James worked around Chicago, 
eventually becoming the harp 
player with the old Muddy Waters 
Blues Band. He stayed with Waters 
and the band for twelve and a half 
years. Finally, in the latter half of 
1965, James broke loose and for- 
med his own band. 

James has his own distinct style 
on both vocals and harp. "I guess," 
said James, "I get my sound by 
playing from the stomach-a lot of 
wind. You gotta keep the wind in 
the harp. ...and when you sing you 
gotta sing what's right for the 
audience. It depends on how they 
feelin' ta what you put down." 

The lead guitarist for the Cotton 
Band is Luther Tucker, a short, 
wide-eyed bluesman who's been 
playing since he was about ten. 
"They used to laugh at his 
playing," related his wife Gloria. 
"Why, they said he was so bad, 
they'd laugh him off the stage. "- 
the fact came out later that "they" 
were professionals and that at the 

time. Tuck wa§ eleven. Prior to 
joining Cotton, Tuck played with 
such established artists as Howlin' 
Wolf, Otis Rush, and the late Little 
Walter Jacobs. 

Bobby "Soup" Anderson, bass 
player, was with Jr. Wells and 
various jazz and blues groups 
before joining Cotton. He is largely 
self-taught, noticeable as he picks 
bass with his index finger. "I just 
started doin' it," he said, "and I 
guess I just got used to doin' it." 
Soup admits a heavy affection for 
jazz and rock 'n roll, but likes the 
blues "because it's a real part of 
music and I guess I dig all types. 
Gotta vary, you know." 

Al Gianguinto, whose influences 
were Bobby Timmons, and Ray 
Charles is the group's pianist. 
Before joining the Cotton en- 
semble, Al had never played with 
an organized group. He was, in 
fact, properly on the San Francisco 
Giants. Al's constant comment to 
people who want to know what he's 
thinking is, "Electricity and 
amplifiers are running music. 
They really distort the beauty of 

Francis Clay, drum designer and 
artist, is a veteran of the business 
and handles drumming chores for 
the band. Most of Clay's ex- 
perience was with jME and big 
bands up to eleven y flwi^ago when 
he went to work for Muddy Waters. 
"They needed a drummer for 
seven days," related Clay. "My 
band wasn't working, so I told him 
I'd sit in. I ended up staying four 
and a half years." 

Clay plays two bass drums and a 
specially built 8-inch timbjk in 
addition to his snare and three Am- 
toms. He fits jazz and blues styles 
into the music the band is doing. He 
is extremely fast on the skins, but 
not noisy as is common with "fast" 
drummers. Clay is the only 
member of the band who has not 
been with it since the beginning. 

With both Sonny Boy Williamson 
and Little Walter Jacobs now dead. 
Cotton ranks as the foremost blues- 
harpist, though he would never 

admit to such praise. All you hear 
from Cotton is praise of other blues 
artists from Charlie Patton on 
down to Mike Bloom field.

THURSDAY, JULY 22, 1971 

SCI Symposium Bridges Gap In Education 

Here at last is a positive approach to the dilemna 
which is confronting the world of higher education today. 
To resolve the conflict between the specialized, 
"fragmented" knowledge imperative to success in a 
particular field, and broader fulfillment in life, the 
Science of Creative Intelligence, a newly emerging field 
of knowledge, has been harnessed by the renowned 
Indian teacher of Transcendental Meditation, Maharishi 
Mahesh Yogi, and will provide the platform for the In- 
ternational Symposium on the Science of Creative In- 
telligence to be held at UMass from July 18 to August 1, 
and at Humboldt State College, Areata, California, 
August 14 to 24. 

Eminent scholars, scientists, philanthropists, and 
representatives of business and government will con- 
vene to explore the structure, means of development and 
practical application of creative intelligence in the 
context of their respective disciplines. The individual 
talks will serve as a springboard for an exchange of 
ideas with Maharishi and further panel discussion 
sparked by audience participation. 

Included in the diversified spectrum of experts who 
will speak are the Nobel Prize winner, chemist Melvin 
r'nlvin; the inventor of the geodesic dome, architect 
lUickminstcr Fuller; and the creator of the film series, 
"l.iving Biology", biologist and photomicrographer 
Roman Vishniac. 

The following vital issues will be considered: What 
arc the principal problems inherent in a given field? In 
what directions are solutions being investigated? What 
are the applied values of each field in terms of human 
flovolopmont? What innovations are necessary in order 
to foster creative and integrative expression in 
educational institutions and in the general social en- 

The sri Symposium is the climax of a six-week 
teacher training program conducted by Maharishi who 
is now devoting full time to training teachers. He has 
just completed a teacher training course in Mallorca, 
Spain, which was attended by 800 students, faculty, and 
professional men and women. Following the UMass 
fourse, he will conduct a similar program at Humboldt 
State College, with an anticipated attendance of 1600. 
The sequel to the teacher training program is scheduled 
to take place in Europe where Maharishi will conduct 
four two-month courses from October 1971 to May 1972. 

Currently courses in the Science of Creative In- 
telligence (SCI) are being offered at several major 
colleges and universities both here and abroad, in- 
cluding Stanford, Yale and Wisconsin. Central to the 
course is the study of the principles and dynamics of 

Transcendental Meditation (TM), an ancient 
philosophy updated by Maharishi for consumption in our 
technological age. 

TM is a simple natural technique which affords the 
mind complete relaxation and release from tension. It is 
a process of actual experience rather than of intellectual 
analysis, whose viability can be tested by personal 

It is important to note that although creative in- 
telligence has been the theme of great writers and ar- 
tists throughout the ages, its benefits are not limited to 
men of genius. Every man, woman and child from every 
walk of life is capable of enjoying its fruits; the mother 
at home, the businessman in his office. The butcher, the 
baker, the candlestick maker. 

The practical utility of TM in everyday existence has 

accelerated its spread to world-wide dimensions. From 
a handful of meditators barely a dozen years ago, TM 
can now claim hundreds of thousands of followers in 50 
countries from Iceland to Australia. 

Its most enthusiastic supporters, however, are in the 
progressive countries such as the United States. 
Practitioners report increased energy and efficiency, 
greater clarity of thinking, as well as improved physical 
health and harmony in social relationships. In Germany, 
for example, where there are over 250 center of TM, 
what particularly recommends the technique to the 
"Drutschen Geschaftsmanner" is the greater 
productivity on the assembly line as well as the 
decreased absenteeism among factory workers. 

Wherever the message of TM has penetrated, it has 
worked like magic: on drug-ridden campuses, in in- 
dustries threatened with alcoholism. Recently, pilot 
programs documenting the efficacy of TM in com- 
batting drug addiction have been sponsored at UCLA 
and Harvard. 

An outgrowth of Transcendental Meditation, the 
Science of Creative Intelligence first surfaced 
academically in the winter of 1970, when Jerry Jarvis, 
director of the Students' International Meditation 
Society (SIMS), launched SCI as an accredited course 
at Stanford. Three hundred and fifty students attended 
and their response was so overwhelming that several adopted the program and many more are 
clamoring for similar courses. 

Maharishi defines SCI as "a systematic inquiry into 
the source of all knowledge in order to provide a unifying 
or holi.stic basis for all branches of learning." 

In response to the challenge of the NOW generation, 
which the academic establishment is unable to meet, 
SCI offers a unique contribution to fill the void in the 
development of our youth. The broad range of its appeal 
is dramatically illustrated by the fact that the course is 
being expounded by professors from such divergent 
disciplines as astrophysics at the University of Colorado 
and art history at Sacramento State College in 
California. Indeed, the viability of creative intelligence 
has been expressed through the works of men in all 
civilizations and in all times, from the pillars of 
Stonehengeto the geodesic dome, from the Vedic hymns 
and Biblical psalms to the computer language of the 20th 

The electrifying discovery — or rediscovery — of this 
latent power is destined to rock the foundations of 
conventional education, fueled by student support. The 
new generation has found its champion, Maharishi 
Mahesh Yogi.

^'ou remember the AEC's 
outasite event last December 18, 
M.ineberry, at their commune in 
Nevada. They were so outrageous 
that their radioactive vibes spread 
river thirteen states and part of 
Cmada. That makes a total of 17 
out of 48 events that got just a little 
(Mit of control. Heavy! and now 
I hey are hack again! Only this 
time, since Cannikin is their 
hiuuest uig yot-five mogatons- 
Ihey're holding the festival in a 
wildlife sanctuary way out on the 
end of Alaska They've tried out 
the place twice already and just 
Know it's the perfect spot for 
Cinnikin It's ;\ little over half a 
mile to the two nearest seismic 
faults. The only really close neigh- 
bors who might object to the earth- 
shaking power of the AEC are 44 
species of birds < mostly nearly 
obsolete bald eagles and peregrine 
falcons ). sea otters, sea lions, 
harbor seals, and a few million 
fish Of course, those old men who 
iim .\laska, .lapan and Canada 
have protested, but it's not their 
property. .Amchitka is United 
States public land, which means it 
belongs to the U.S. government. If 
f ongress is willing to pay the AEC 
and Nixon is willing to sign them, 
the party's on no matter what the 

neighbors think. 

And you know, with the AEC 
heading the bill, anything can 
happen. There's still radiation 
from Long Shot in 19f)5 and Milrow 
in 1969. At the, part of the 
t'round will jump in the air, taking 
water and fish with it. When it all 
f omes down, the beat may be 
heard for miles along those groovy 
faults. Vibration along one of the 
world's major earthquake zones! 
W.ives of cosmic energy reaching

I'et a hit off some old World War II 
mustard gas that's been stashed on 
t he ocean floor in rusty drums for a 
fiuarter of a century. Wow! 

But what will really take you 
higher is the energy of the 
cosmic forces that the AEC always 
renerates. Of course, to keep the 
.luthorities calm, they insist that 
everything will be under control. 
They've moved the stage to over a 
mile below the surface and about 
halfw.ty between the two nearest 
known faults. They say they're 
sure the new vibes won't call back 
the spirits of tho.-^e earlier events: 
"It is not conceivable that Can- 
nikin would cause release of un- 
derground radioactivity from the 
cavities which remain from the 
earlier Milrow and Long Shot 
tests" If you make it sound of- 
ficial, you know, government of- 
ficials will go ;ilong with anything. 
Like, they think this thing is for the 
national defense. They were going 
In -shoot this monster up in the air 
in .1 Spartan rocket to form an x-

f hinese missiles Buck Rogers! 
I'.irt of that nation-wide tour called 
ABM that got cancelled a couple of

.ibsolutely bursting out: and even 
if finly ";i few percent of the total

.ludienre. just think what a few

An Account of My Frustrations 

The question of the answer is not 
the question, but rather it is the 
«iuestion of the ques|^on that is the 

The following question, below, 
was .i.sked to a young unassuming 
sociology class and here is my 
young una.ssuming answer to that 

What is meant when it is said 
that "Socialization is never 
completely succe.ssful?" Point out 
how it occurs and why variation in 
success is found. 

In order to answer question l-B, I 
turned to the glossary in Lenski's 
text. My findings and frustration 
with the 'Socialese' jargon of 
sociologists may prove amusing to 
you since you have to correct .so 
many papers in your position as 
graduate slave. ^ Being that 
correcting the errors of in- 
numerable undergraduates is of no 
redeeming intellectual value to 
you.) I looked up the given 
flefinition for 'socialization' and I'll 
repeat it here: 

The process by means of 

which a person acquires the 
culture of his society. 

I didn't know what exactly 
culture was .so I relied on Lenski 

— A society's symbol system 
;md all the aspects of human life 
depend on it. 

Then I looked up symbol, and 
met my frustration. 

A culturally determined 

vehicle for the transmission of 

1 originally planned to substitute 
these definitions. I'll still do it, but 

originally I planned to get some 
answers. ( Be patient there is an 
answer at the end of all this.) 

The definition of socialization. 

The process by means of 

which a person acquires the 
society's society's society's 
sftciety's society's 

society's and it repeats and 

repeats. ..forever and I'm damned! 

You see when I came to the word 
(iiltiire I substituted the definition 
for culture and when I came to the 
word symbol I substituted for its 
definition which began with the 
word culture its definition and 
around and around in the circle 
came. And that was my 

So you see the above is the 
rea.son I am not socialized well into 
the society of sociologist.. .-

learned to answer questions in this 
way. However, I don't know the 
variable in my life that probablized 
this reply to your question. 

All I can do is quote from Ec- 
clesatices, 'Emptiness of Emp- 
tiness all is Emptiness.' and make 
up .something that sounds like a 
quote from .somewhere. "The pain 
of being human is that one can see 
the difference between what is and 
what could be." Like what could be 
is that those definitions could have 
pieced together a logical train of 
thought that chugged right up to 
the door of rea.son and explained to 
me what socialization is. But, pain, 
what is real is a lack of not only the 
definition of socialization, but 
socialization it.self. 

So, unsuccessful socialization 
occurs by the existence of this 
paper and I'm damned if I know 
the fi4.000 dollar question, WHY?

bombards us with senseless human 
brutality and naive pacifistic 
propaganda, DR. 

ropro.sentation of the ultimate 
depravity and hopelessness of man 
.md his sy.stems is not so much

That such a film could, at the

;ind a ridiculous comedy is a 
tribute to the directorial execution 
of Stanley Kubrick (LOLITA,

firamatic tension and comic

The most important element is, 
however, the .self-conscious nature 
of the acting performances which 
provides immediate commentary 
on the roles and sends the entire 
film careening back and forth 
between absurd tomfoolery and 
frightening reality. The charac-

Pianist To Offer Recital 

I'ianist Alegria Arce will offer a recital next Thursday evening, 
.luly 22nd at 8: 00 p.m. in Bowker Auditorium on the Amherst 
campus of the University of Massachusetts. 

This concert is part of the 1971 Summer Program and is open to 
UMass summer students with ID's free of charge. Unreserved 
tickets for others are $1.50 and may be obtained by contacting the 
University's Fine Arts Council, 125 Herter Hall or at Bowker 
Auditorium Box Office one hour before the concert. Telephone 545- 
0202 reaches both ticket offices. 

Miss Arce, a native of Ecuador, has appeared with the New York 
Philharmonic under Andre Kostelanetz and The Houston Sym- 
phony Orchestra under Andre Previn's direction. Recently, she 
was n finalist in the 26th International Leventritt Competition for 
I'ianists. Her program at the University of Massachusetts will 
include two Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti, Beethoven's Sonata in 
r Major, Opus 2, No. 3, Maurice Ravel's "Valse Nobles et Sen- 
timentales" Sonatta in E flat Major. Opus 81a ("Les Adieux") by 
Beethoven and Chopin's "Fantasy in F Minor".

Indeed isn't it rather sick to

crave world situation? The poet 
and critic Lewis Mumford com-

wacky characters in DR. 
STRANGELOVE are saying is 
precisely what needs to be said: 
this nightmare eventually that we 
have concocted for our children is 
nothing but a crazy fantasy, by 
nature as horribly crippled and 
dehumanized as Dr. Strangelove 
himself. It is not this film that is 
sick: what is sick is our supposedly

Eric The Rat Returns To Greatness 


The scene was complete. The babbling crowd, half 
ready to pass out on the ground; the omnipresent stage 
announcements, and the fuzzy sound of rock music 
reproduced through AV's "maximum distortion" 
system. If the band plays loud enough, and the speakers 
are set at full distortion the equipment has the ability to 
make even a mediocre band sound like Cape Kennedy at 
lift off. The rationale behind this kind- of music 
reproduction is clear: if the music sounded clear and 
distortion free there would be no difference between 
seeing a group live and listening to a record. But, there is 
something exciting about the feeling of an ear drum 
ready to burst, that just can not be reproduced through 
an average stereo system. It is these extremely high 
notes-usually called feedback-that excite the crowd into 
frenzy. There is rarely any feedback in a home unit. 

When you listen to a stereo in your room most of the 
lime you don't get up and jump around the room. At a 
rock concert it is accepted behavior to get into the music 
and express your oneness with the music in whatever 
physical manner you desire. FYom first hand experience 
I have learned that extended "record listening" sessions 
held in dormitory rooms usually lead to three or four 
persons stretched on the floor, one person plugged into a 
pair of head phones, and another sound asleep in front of 
a speaker. It is rare that this same syndrome ever oc- 
curs at a live event. 

The reason for this large abberation in behavior 
amongst UMass students lies in the crowd. The typically 
zonked Umie lacks the inspiration to rise and "Dance to 
the Music" in his room. Last Wednesday, inspiration 
came to the Campus Campus stairs. Ordinarily, this 
area of the campus is reserved for people who like to eat 
long hot dogs, drink Boone's Farm, and groove on the 
beautiful brick walls of Hasbrouck. And this was about 
all you could see during the concert, for these walls were 
the only thing you could see from the audience. Due to 
the poor design of the "amphitheater" it was impossible 
to see the groups while they were performing unless you 
were directly in line for a hot dog, or in position to drop 
beer on them from Top of the Campus. Of the 2500 people 
who attended the concert no more than 150 people 
directly in front of the stage could see the performance. 

Despite the fact that no one could see the bands, the 
crowd was excited to frenzy by the early arrival of the 
very inspiration that the crowd needed. As the music 
pumped in the background, up from the crowd came the 
Messiah, to lead the crowd into frenzy. Complete with 
sandals and long stringy hair, and clasping his forty- 
eight star Crucifix, he rose from the masses. As the 
familiar face and gentle vibes were received by the 
audience, a gentle hush rose from the crowd. "Is it him? 
Can it be? " 

Soon it was apparent that yes indeed, our own Umie 
Messiah had returned from banishment in the desert and 
was once again bringing inspiration to his children. The 
hush turned into a murmur as he was recognized, arms 
outstretched against the Campus Center, the crowd 
studying the big "M", (As he was known for years) 
looking for a sign. "Can he still do it?" was the question 
echoing up from the crowd. "Can he still perform those 
marvelous miracles which had earned him such 
notoriety in past years. 

It then became apparent that the rumors that 
thousands of people were streaming to Amherst, 
remembering UMass as the home of the great rock 
festivals were untrue. Stories of a "possible ap- 
pearance of Seatrain, the Stones, and J. Geils were said 
to have backed the Mass Pike well into the Prudential 
Center, possibly into the Charles. Included m this am- 
bitious crowd were many perennial UMass 
"• angarounders" and a few UMass students. In the 
words of one swing-shifter, awe struck by the crowd, 
"Far out. lots of freaks here." He was then swallowed by 
a run-away Boone's Farm bottle. 

The Author 

It was the Messiah who had planted these rumors 
hoping to incite as many apathetic, over-heated Umies 
to the concert as could possibly still walk. But why had 
he picked as inauspicious an occasion as this rock 
concert to make his return appearance on the campus? 
Why had he not waited for 'freshman convocation' to 
once again display his contentful glint, the proud strut, 
and his weird but beautiful muscular contorsions? It was 
indeed a pleasure to be once again lead in calisthetics by 
the Messiah who showed us all how to correctly execute 
a push-up. 

Sufficiently convinced that his warm up exercises had 
raised the fever of the crowd, he dashed off into the 
masses carrying his flag behind him. Out to meet the 
people, accompanied by his usual contingent of "wise 
men", he attempted to communicate with his followers 
through dance. Shimmering to the music, and shouting 

his holy message-"C'mon you fuckers-boogie!" he 
proceeded to allow his benevolent telepathic waves to 
cminate into the audience. His followers, all grasped by 
the same rapture, began to coax the general masses up 
and into the heavenly dance that always signals the 
arrival of the Messiah. 
And how strange and mysterious are the ways of the 
Messiah. Since the last celebration of his coming, there 
have been increasing amounts of skepticism on the 
campus if He could actually still perform the miracles of 
yesteryear that had endeared us all to him. Those 
marvelous feats, performed by Him at any of his 
numerous outdoor dance contests, or on his visit to the 
infirmary to cure the ill of spirit. 

The students at the University feel they have a right to 
know when the Messiah will expose himself to the 
campus. Since his last appearance during the strike, 
there had been no sign given the UMass student body, 
that we were still the chosen people. The Messiah's 
glorious presence was conspicuously absent from the 
great outdoor concerts of last semester, and prior to that 
many of his most fervent followers had begun wearing 
fig leaves at "Wednesday's at Four" out of reverence to 
the great one's memory. 

It seemed that the spiritual well-being of the campus 
would be left to chance, that the Messiah had forgotten 
us. The truth of the matter may be that the Messiah, 
disguised as Aqualung, has been off visiting other 
campuses across the Pioneer Valley, questioning our 
very worthiness. More than once during the last few 
months his presence has been detected on several 
campuses, quietly "boogying" in the background. It 
appears that He may have returned to UMass utterly 
displeased with extra-territorial life. 

If this is true, it behooves the UMass population to 
make the Messiah welcome on the campus. Frequently, 
the University tends to lose the spirit that this man can 
bring us. Only he can incite the campus to rise and 
boogie in the dormitories. But first we must believe. 

It is very easy to lose enthusiasm during the summer. 
For this very reason, it is now that the Messiah has 
chosen to return to the campus. He knows you are all 
bored, and lacking the spirit. This is why he has picke^ 
this summer to return to his chosen children, the UMies. 
While he was in banishment from the campus, the 
Great One was testing the worthiness of the UMass 
student body. Just as we had been chosen by him, he 
must be chosen by us. If the relationship is mutual, then 
the campus can not exhibit any enthusiasm, with their 
spiritual leader in exile. That is the reason you have 
been nodding out in your room while the Stones are on, 
why you can't stay awake for your last class or get up for 
the first one, and on days when you only have one class 
you prefer to stay in your room and play whist. 

He has returned to us to raise our spirits to the heights 
only he can exude from the crowd. It is us, the student 
body of the university that the Messiah has decided 
needs his presence more than any other campus in the 
vicinity. It is us who need to have our spirits raised from 
apathy to involvement. In this, the Messiah is correct. 
Only starting at the place with the lowest spirit in the 
universe, can he truly work a miracle, and that's what it 
will take. To involve this campus, to get us up and 
dancing in our rooms, will take a miracle.

Status Report On Parking 

This past spring the University Administration confronted the following problems: 

* A rapidly increasing number of cars registered on campus 

* Increased commuter traffic 

* Increased traffic congestion and vehicle-pedestrian conflicts on campus 

* Decreasing number of central parking spaces 

* Increased vandalism and theft in parking lots 

* Need for a well planned, balanced transportation and parking system as the University 
grows from 20,000 to 25,000 students 

* Need for revenue to implement this system 

These concerns are interrelated and require thoughtful and comprehensive long range 

As a first step last May, the administration reviewed with various representative bodies on 
campus a proposed increase in parking services and rates. This was done with great reluc- 
tance but with the realization that we could not reasonably expect state appropriation support 
for this item when so many competing needs for higher education appropriation statewide, as 
well as on this campus, have yet to be met. 

Since this spring, a significant new opportunity has developed for a balanced transportation 
and parking system with a greater number of options available in the near future than we had 
anticipated. We refer to an application just submitted to the Department of Transportation for 
demonstration grant for an expanded transit system. This proposal was 
formulated with the assistance of the Student Senate Transit Systenri, 
School of Engineering representatives, and the administration. Within 
the next few weeks, we hope to have some indication of the probability of 
this grant being made. 

Because of this, we are examining a series of alternative rate struc- 
tures which take into account the comments of the various representative 
bodies previously consulted as well as the new options which rnay^be 
available. P'rom this review will come an interim system and 
proposal which will be presented to the Trustees late this summer.

An organization designed to 
obtain goods and services for 
students, faculty and staff at 
reasonable prices, has been 
initiated in the town of Amherst. 
E.A.R.T.H.S.' (European- 
America n-Relief-To-Hel p- 
Students) overall objective is to 
help lower the prices in areas 
where the student is the primary 
source of business. 

A worldwide consumer co- 
operative, centered in Geneva 
Switzerland, E.A.R.T.H.S. is a 
coalition of non-political student 
organizations representing the 

Orient, the Near East, Africa and 
the Americas. Based on the 
cooperation of merchants it has 
arranged a system of discounts for 
its members not only in the 
Americas, but throughout the. 

The businesses with which 
E.A.R.T.H.S. establishes price 
cuts are chosen primarily for the 
quality, service and convenience 
that they offer their members. It 
provides discounts that may vary 
from store to store and discounted 
merchandise (requested through a 
poll) which can be purchased by 
E.A.R.T.H.S. members for less. 

Chartered flights to inter- 
continental and domestic areas are 
also determined through a poll and 
are obtainable at substantially 
reduced rates which undercut even 
the youth fares. Seating on the 
flights are guaranteed months in 

"Because insurance is inclusive 
in the price of the flight, if due to 
illness a member cannot make the 
flight his money is returned.", said 
Jim Tripp, director of E.A.R.- 
T.H.S. in New York. Expert travel 
consultation is offered free of 

Membership is limited to 



The University Council will hold 
a special meeting Monday, the 
primary purpose being to inform 
the council members of the state of 
the budget as a result of Gov. 
Richard Ogilvie's cutbacks, ac- 
cording to Richard C. Bowers, NIU 
provost and vice president. 

Bowers, acting as council 
chairman for vacationing 
President Rhoten A. Smith, 
scheduled the meeting to follow the 
meeting of the Board of Regents 
Thursday, Normal. 

A University Council caucus was 
held yesterday, according to Dr. P. 
Allen Dionisopoulos, council 
member, so that members could 
get some "feed-in" to the provost 
prior to the Board of Regents 

University Council Secretary 
James H. King suggested that 
Monday's meeting was called to 
share with faculty and students 

whatever decisions will be made at 
the Regent's meeting. 

"The main issue is what can be 
done to increase the allocations," 
said Dr. Paul S. Burtness, dean of 
the College of Liberal Arts and 
Sciences, and council member. He 
cited three possible recom- 
mendations that may be made at 
the meeting. 

Burtness suggested that some 
systems may want to recommend 
that additional funds needed 
should come from tuition in- 

Another possible recom- 
mendation is that necessary funds 
be raised by the legislature to 
equal the amount that would have 
come from a tuition increase. 

Finally, according to Burtness, 
some systems may want to appeal 
to the legislature to override the 
governor's cutback of the ap- 
propriation for higher education. 
He added, "The provost will 

possibly explain to the council how 
complex the problems are in this 
matter and what the variables are, 
in order to get discussion and 
advice from the members. 

"Not many on campus are aware 
of the dynamics of this issue," he 
said. "The General Assembly does 
not reconvene until October and 
the matter may not be settled until 

Robert W. Buggert, dean of the 
College of Fine and Applied Arts, 
and council member, explained 
that a tuition increase may not be 
an answer to Northern's budget 
problems, because we may not get 
the dollars back from the tuition 

students enrolled in a university or 
college and the staff and faculty of 
these institutions. The fee for 
membership until August 1, 1971 is 
$5.00 for a year and $15.00 for four 
years. No member is under 
obligation to purchase anything. 

A regular newsletter is 
distributed to all members with the 
latest information on air flights 
and updated material on the 
discounts offered. Use of the 
E.A.R.T.H.S. membership card at 
any of the businesses requires the 
presenting of appropriate iden- 

"E.A.R.T.H.S. is unique because 
it is a service organization which 
through polls maintains a working 
communication link with its 
members", said Tripp. 

"Some of the businesses which 
iiave agreed to discounts in the 
Amherst area are; The Four 
Seasons Package Store with a 5% 

discount on any purchase over 
$2.00, College Town Mobil with a 
10% discount on everything except 
fuel from a pump on purchases 
over $2.00, Colonial T.V. and 
Repair with a 5% discount and 
minimum purchase of $2.00 on 
everything and a 10% discount on 
everything with no minimum 
purchase at the Faces of Earth", 
said Tripp. 

"One of our aspirations in for- 
ming was to offer the University 
community a variety of items 
within the financial range of 
students which cannot be pur- 
chased on campus." said Tripp. 
"In the future we hope to have on 
retainer lawyers to help any of our 
members who may be in need of 
legal assistance. We also plan to 
have a toll free number and a 
system whereby any member may 
cash a check under $20.00 in any 
state," said Tripp.

How To End Up In F Lot 

1. Fill out the enclosed temporary vehicle registration application 
for 1971-1972, returning it with your check for $1.00, made 
payable to the University of Massachusetts. Mail the completed 
application (please print information and sign) and check no 
later than August 12, 1971, to: Parking Coordinator, 105 Hamp- 
shire House, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, MA. 01002. 

2. You will then be issued temporary identification decals valid for 
a period not to extend after October 15, 1971. Lot assignments 
will be made under prevailing priority systems within the 
following constraint: the registered capacity of each "num- 
bered" lot will retain the same proportionate mix of student cars 
to faculty/staff cars as existed in lot assignments during 1970- 


3. Once Trustees have approved a Parking Plan for 1971-1972, you 
will be asked to obtain permanent decals. Fees may be con- 
siderably higher than $1.00. but the $1.00 paid in Step #1 will be 
credited towards the annual fee for the parking options 
a vailable. (See othe r sj^le for dftails ) 

There may exist fear that some 
small communities with a large 
percentage of students in the 
population may be "I aken over" by 
student voters, who may then 
implement "radical" programs. 
The possibility of such a "lake- 
over", however, would depend 
largely upon how many students 
were willing to give up their right 
to vote in their communities of 
origin. Moreover, the fear that 
student-voters would tend to take 
radical measures may be 
groundless. See Legislative 
History on Twenty-sixth Amend- 
ment U.S. Code Cong. & Ad. News, 
92d Cong., 1st Sess., 364 (Adv. Sh. 
No. 3, April 25, 1971). At any rate, 
students over the age of eighteen 
years, if they have the intention of 
making their college town their 
home indefinitely, "have a right to 
an equal opportunity for political 
representation. ..'Fencing out' 
from the franchise a sector of the 
population because of the way they 
may vote is constitutionally im- 
permissible." Carrington v. Rash, 
380 U.S. 89, 94; Evans v. Cornman, 
398 U.S. 419, 423. 

In summary, no definitive an- 
swer can be given to the question 
whether the persons described in 
the above hypothetical situations 
are entitled to register to vote in 
the cities or towns where they 
presently reside. The resolution of 
each case will depend upon the 
particular facts of that case. While 
I have been urged to provide 
various Boards of Registrars of 
Voters and Election Com- 
missioners with general guidelines 
to aid them in resolving questions 
in this area, I deem it inap- 
propriate to do so. Each case will, 
of course, be different, and the 
varying factual situations cannot 
be identified with any degree of 
certainty. Any attempt to treat 
exhaustively the different 
situations which may arise, will, of 
necessity, fail because some 
situations will be omitted or 
overlooked. Moreover, I deem it 
unwise to commit myself in ad- 
vance to the resolution of factual 

problems which may never occur, 
and I consider it the better course 
to leave myself free to resolve 
situations and cases which are 
presented to me at such time as 
resolution is required. 

There can be stated, however, 
certain general principles which 
may be of aid in resolving par- 
ticular cases as they arise. First, 
the fact that a minor over eighteen 
years of age is not emancipated, 
financially or otherwide, from his 
parents has no bearing on his right 
to choose his own domicil for 
voting purposes. The fact that such 
a minor, whether or not a student, 
may be supported in whole or in 
part by his parents is in itself in- 
sufficient reason to refuse to 
register an otherwise qualified 
applicant. Second, that fact that a 
minor voter who is a student 
resides in a dormitory, fraternity 
house or other college residence is 
of no relevance. The basic question 
to be answered is whether he in- 
tends to return to his former home 
as soon as his course of studies is 
completed. The fact that he may 
find residence in a dormitory or 
fraternity house more convenient 
or less expensive than renting an 
off-campus apartment does not 
answer that question. 

In conclusion, the decision 
whether a minor voter in one of the 
above hypothetical situations is 
entitled to register to vote should 
be reached in the same manner as 
a like decision regarding an ap- 
plicant for registration who is over 
twenty-one years of age and has 
recently moved into the city or 
town. And, although the 1843 
Opinion of the Justices, to which I 
have referred, does state that 
"stronger facts and circumstances 
must concur to establish the proof 
of change of domicil in the. 
(of a student residing at an 
educational institution)" (Opinion 
of the Justices, supra, 5 Met. 587, 
590), that statement cannot be 
considered valid today in the light 
of the Twenty-sixth Amendment to 
the Federal Constitution. 

Yours very truly, 
Attorney General

Text Of Ruling On Registration 
nf ^tiiHp.nt« Tn College Towns 

Quinn's Decision 

Attorney General Robert Quinn's ruling last week, 
which allowed students to vote in all elections in the 
communities where they live while attending school, 
seems to be both equitable and just. Traditionally, town 
clerks have refused to register students in this state if the 
student was supported bv parents who resided in another 
community, even though ne may have established per- 
manent residence in the community where he was at- 
tending school. Quinn's decision was unexpected since it 
overturned, in effect, an 1843 opinion by the Supreme 
Judicial Court of Massachusetts, which held that Harvard 
students should vote where their parents lived. 

Quinn's ruling set down certain guidelines concerning 
student voting. He felt that financial dependence on 
parents living elsewhere has no bearing, and given the 
present federal laws concerning elections it is difficult to 
see how anyone could conceive of a legitimate legal 
argument to the contrary. Quinn also stated that whether a 
student lived in a dormitory, fraternity house or anywhere 
else was of "no relevance". Officials in New England 
towns with substantial student populations have at great 
length complained about the possibility of students voting 
and not having to pay little or no real estate taxes. This 
argument seems to be at the very least premature since 
the assumption of some, that those students who do decide 
to vote where they attend school are going to be more 
fiscally irresponsible, than the average citizen, has little 
factual basis. 

Also many students to pay real estate taxes in the form 
of their monthly rent to local landlords and developers. 
Perhaps Mr. Quinn's most significant observation 
however was that "The basic question to be answered is 
whether he intends to return to his former home as soon as 
his course of studies is completed". In the ruling he felt 
this question of intent was best left up to the student. Here 
Attorney General Quinn has made a significant departure 
from many of his counterparts around the country since 
students will be able to make their own decision con- 
cerning the community in which they want to "Hve" or 
have a direct interest in, rather than having a town clerk 
or the state legislature make this decision for them. 

Are Jewish Students Different? 

Owing to their prominent, anti- 
Establishment role on the campus, 
Jewish students are finding it 
increasingly difficult to gain ad- 
mission to a number of univer- 

From Harvard to Madison, 
according to the July issue of 
Change, the magazine of higher 
education, Jewish high school 
graduates are finding entrance 
requirements more difficult to 

At no institution, writes author 
Dorothy Rabinowitz in "Are 
Jewish Students Different?" do the 
letters of rejection bear a visible, 
anti-Semitic stamp. But the results 
are the same as if the notorious 
quota systems of the post World 
War One era had been restored. At 
Harvard, many Jewish applicants 
happen to be screened out by a 
general policy which reduces the 
pupil intake from major suburbs. 
In one meeting Dr. Chase N. 
Peterson, dean of admissions at 
Harvard, attempted to reassure 
suspicious Jewish faculty mem- 
bers that there was no particular 
ethnic group in the country whose 
quota of admissions had been 
reduced. Rather, based upon his 
impressions, he said, the Harvard 
Admissions Committee found 
applicants less desirable than 
formerly if they hailed from "the 
doughnuts around the big cities." 
After he told the faculty mem- 
bers which suburbs made up the 
"doughnuts," one faculty member 
replied, "Dr. Peterson, those 
aren't doughnuts, they're bagels." 
According to author Rabinowitz, 
Dr. Peterson said the "doughnuts" 
included such areas as West- 
chester County, New York, Long 
Island, N.V., suburban New Jersey 
and Shaker Heights, O. The author 
termed the Harvard policy "an 
assault on the aspirations of 
Jewish and Everyman's good, 
solid, clean-nosed sons and 
daughters, including middle-class 
blacks, who were not fortunate 
enough to be born into inner city 
ghettos, not clever enough to 
choose alienation or to threaten 
social thuggery, not imaginative 
enough to posture militance..." 
The author ascribes the alleged 
geographic discrimination by 
universities to the fact that Jewish 

students of late have been heavily 
represented "in the counter 
culture," and for every Bob Dylan 
turned Zionist there is an Arthur 
Waskow who nettles the Establish- 

"He (the Jewish student) is 
visible and over-represented both 
among radicals and just plain 
social changes; he always has 
been. If he is not of the Abbie 
Hoffmans, he is with Nader's 
Raiders. While his over- 
representation in such circles 
constitutes nothing like a majority 
of Jews he is nonetheless 
dramatically visible." 

In her article, author Rabinowitz 
dates the decline in Jewish 
enrollment at the University of 
Wisconsin at Madison to March, 
1967, when the Board of Regents 
put into effect a system that would 
reduce the enrollment of out-of- 
state residents to 15 per cent of the 
student body by 1971. 

She claimed, "This was a refined 
version of an even more obvious 
exclusion plan, since disavowed, 
whereby applications from 10 
states would be 'held' until ap- 
plications from all other states 
were processed. 

"The hold states," she con- 
tinued, "included practically all 
the great centers of Jewish 
population. More than 90 per cent 
of Wisconsin's Jewish students 
came from there. With im- 
plementation of the plan, refined 
though it was, has come, naturally 
enough, a dizzying drop in Jewish 

The number of Jewish students 
enrolled at Wisconsin in Sept., 1970, 
is estimated at but one-third or less 
of their numbers in Sept., 1966. The 
author claims that one State 
Assembly member, in 1969, told a 
group of students, "It is the 
damned New York Jews we want 
to keep out, not Gentile out of state 
students." And author Rabinowitz 
says that "Wisconsin's reaction to 
its Jewish 'problem' is thought to 
have originated in the popular and 
local legislators' belief that Jewish 
'problem' is thought to have 
originated in the popular and local 
legislators' belief that Jewish 
activists were responsible for 
campus unrest and for acts of civil 

The following is the text of Atty. 
Gen. Robert Quinn's letter of 
opinion to John F.X.Davoren, 
secretary of state. 

Dear Mr. Secretary: 

You have requested my opinion 
on certain questions propounded 
by representatives of the city and 
town clerks of the commonwealth. 
The questions relate to persons 
between the ages of 18 and 21, both 
students and non-students, who 
seek to register to vote in 
Massachusetts cities and towns 
where they presently live. The 
hypothetical situations which have 
been presented to me include the 
following: (1) students residing in 
dormitory residences who are 
supported by their parents; (2) 
students residing in dormitory 
residences who are self- 
supporting; (3) students residing 
in apartments or other non-college 
residence facilities, both depen- 
dent upon their parents and self- 
supporting; and (4) non-students 
who have left their parents' homes 
and are either dependent upon 
their parents or self-supporting. 

First, it is assumed in all cases 
that the student or non-student, as 
the case may be, seeks to register 
to vote in a community other than 
where his or her parents reside. 
Secondly, the cases which have 
been presented to me include 
persons whose parents reside 
within the commonwealth and 
cases where parents reside in 
another state. For the purposes of 
the discussion which follows, it is 
immaterial whether the parents 
reside within Massachusetts or 
elsewhere. Finally, it is also 
assumed that the student or non- 
student, as the case may be, is a 
citizen of the United States either 
by birth or naturalization. 

While I would ordinarily decline 
to answer questions propounded by 
municipal officials, even though 
presented by the head of a state 
agency or a constitutional officer 
(Compare Op. Atty. Gen'l 1969- 
1970, No. 37, June 30, 1970), the 
questions posed appear to be of 
general applicability and are 
recurring. In addition, there are 
presently pending in the United 
States District Court for the 
District of Massachusetts three 
suits raising questions analogous 
to those presented by your request 
(Garrett v. Larkin, et al., Civil 
Action No. 71-651-W, Vance et al. v. 
Board of Election Commissioners, 
Civil Action No. 71-1229-F and 
Monroe v. Board of Election 
Commissioners of Cambridge, 
Civil Action No. 71-1442-F). Since I 
am required to defend in those 
cases, inasmuch as you, in your 
official capacity, are a defendant 
in the cases, and because diversity 
of answers to your questions would 
create "a problem of state-wide 
importance" (see 1968 Op. Atty. 
Gen'l 129, 130), I proceed to answer 
the questions presented in the 
"hope that these views will bring 
about consistent application (of the 
principles applying to voter 
registration) throughout the 
commonwealth. "(Id.) 

The answers to these questions 
require examination of Federal 
and state constitutional provisions, 
as well as of a number of court 
decisions and advisory opinions. 

The Twenty-sixthAmendment to 
the Constitution of the United 
States, recently ratified by three- 
fourths of the states, provides in 
section 1 that "The right of citizens 
of the United States, who are 
eighteen years of age or older, to 
vote shall not be denied or 
abridged by the United States or by 
any state on account of age." The 
states, however, "have long been 
held to have broad powers to 
determine the conditions under 
which the right of suffrage may be 
exercised." Lassiter v. Nor- 

thampton Election Bd., 360 U.S. 45, 
50; Evans v. Cornman, 398 U.S. 
419, 422. Included among them is 
the "power to impose reasonable 
restrictions on the availability of 
the ballot." Carrington v. Rash, 380 
U.S. 89, 91. Under the Constitution 
of Massachusetts, "Every citizen 
of nineteen (Since ratification of 
the Twenty-sixth Amendment the 
number "eighteen" should be read 
in place of "nineteen".) years of 
age and upwards. ..who shall have 
resided within the town or district 
in which he may claim a right to 
vote, six calendar months next 
preceding any election... shall have 
a right to vote in such elec- 
tion. ..and no other person shall be 
entitled to vote in such election." 
The requirement that the applicant 
"shall have resided" in the town 
for six months has traditionally 
been construed as requiring that 
the applicant have estabhshed his 
"domicil" in the town. Opinion of 
the Justices, 5 Met. 587, 588. The 
concept of "domicil" is utilized for 
many purposes, including property 
tax liability and probate 
jurisdiction of wills (See, e.g., 
Texas v. Florida, 306 U.S. 398, 413- 
428.) and the custody of children. 
Some of the stricter requirements 
of "domicil" pertaining to those 
areas have not always been ap- 
plied when the question concerns 
"domicil" for voting purposes. See 
Putnam v. Johnson, 10 Mass. 487, 
501. In general, "domicil" means 
actual residence in the town, 
coupled with an intention to remain 
indefinitely. See Putnam v. 
Johnson, supra, at 500-501; Opinion 
of the Justices, supra, at 590. See 
also Carrington v. Rash, supra, at 
94. The intention to remain in- 
definitely does not mean an in- 
tention to stay forever, but merely 
that there is no present intention of 
leaving. Putnum v. Johnson, 

The recent extension of the 
franchise to citizens between 18 
and 21 years of age presents some 
difficulty in establishing whether 
an applicant of that age is entitled 
to register. Although some 
disabilities of minors have recently 
been removed from those over 18, 
see St. 1971, c. 253 (lowering the 
age at which a person may make a 
campaign contribution in excess of 
$25 to 18 years); St. 1971, c. 255 
(males may marry without 
parental consent at age 18); and St. 
1971, c. 291 (person may make a 
will at age 18), they remain minors 
until they are 21 or otherwise 
emancipated. It is the general rule 
that "ordinarily 'the domicil of a 
legitimate minor child is that of the 
father.' Glass v. Glass, 260 Mass. 
562, 564. Restatement: Conflict of 
Laws, 30." Green v. Green, 351 
Mass. 466, 467-468. It appears, 
however, that an unemancipated 
minor may establish his own 
domicil with the assent, express or 
implied, of his parents or guardian. 
See Kirkland v. Whately, 4 Allen 
462. An emancipated minor of 
course has the power to establish 
his own domicil. Restatement: 
Conflict of Laws, 31. If these 
principles were applied to voter 
registration,, an unemancipated 
minor over 18 would be restricted 
to his father's voting residence 
unless his father gave his assent to 
a change of residence. 

As noted above, however, the 
rules pertaining to domicil for tax 
or probate purposes may not 
always prevail where domicil for 
voting purposes is concerned. 
Putnam v. Johnson, 10 Mass. 487, 
501. The purposes of the domicil 
requirement are to afford the 
registrars of voters the opportunity 
to ascertain the qualifications of 
the voter, and to prevent the 
possibility of fraud though multiple 
voting. Id. at 502. To restrict the 
ability of an unemancipated minor, 
over the age of 18, to choose his 

domicil for voting purposes would 
serve neither of these purposes. 
Moreover, to restrict the 18-year- 
old's right to choose his residence 
for voting purposes, a right 
possessed by voters over 21 years 
of age, would be to "abridge" his 
right to vote "on account of age", 
in contravention of the 26th 
Amendment. Consequently, it 
must be concluded that, for pur- 
poses of registering to vote, a 
minor either emancipated or 
unemancipated over the age of 18 
years has the right to establish his 
own domicil with or without the 
consent of his parents or guardian. 
The determination whether a 
student from another city or state, 
who has taken up residence at or 
near the college or university he 
attends, has made his new 
residence his domicil for voting 
purposes is, as in all cases of 
recently moved registrants, a 
question of fact, to be determined 
by all the circumstances of the 
case. Opinion of the Justices, 5 
Met. 587. As noted above, the basic 
elements of domicil are the actual 
establishment of residence in the 
city or town, and an intent to 
remain there indefinitely. Once a 
student living at or near a college 
or university has shown that he has 
resided in the city or town "in 
which he may claim a right to vote, 
six calendar months next 
preceding any election of gover- 
nor. Lieutenant governor, 
senators, or representatives," or 
any other state, city or town 
election. See G.L. c. 51 fl, and has 
declared his intention to stay in the 
city or town for an indefinite 
period, he has shown himself 
eligible to register as a voter. (Am. 
Art. Ill, Mass. Const.) 

As in the case of any other ap- 
plicant for registration, of course, 
the circumstances may be such as 
to show that the student applicant 
in fact lacks the necessary intent to 
establish his domicil in the town. 
However, the fact that he is a 
student, residing in the town for the 
purpose of pursuing a course of 
studies for a number of years, 
should place on him no greater 
burden of proving his domiciliary 
intent. Whether he prefers or is 
required to reside in a college 
dormitory rather than in privately 
purchased or leased premises is of 
no real utility in determining his 
intent, see Putnam v. Johnson, 
supra, at 490; while in 1843 great 
weight was placed in the Opinion of 
the Justices, supra, upon whether 
the student's father was supporting 
him while at college, this factor is 
of little relevance today. It is 
common for parents to contribute 
to the support of their children 
attending college. Yet it is also 
common today that students upon 
graduation do not return to their 
home towns. Many decide to stay 
in the communities where their 
colleges are located; many others 
move to different cities and dif- 
ferent parts of the country, ac- 
cording to the opportunities for 
employment or postgraduate 
studies. It may have been the 
general habit for students in 1843 to 
return home after graduation; if 
their families paid for their 
education, there may have been 
even more reason for assuming an 
intention to return. However, in 
view of the mobility of persons and 
families in today's society, and of 
the indefinite nature of the plans of 
college undergraduates generally, 
the same cannot be said today. 
Perhaps most college students do 
return home at graduation but an 
intention on the part of a college 
student to return to his former 
home cannot be presumed on the 
basis of his family's financial

Ellsberg Talks With Cavett 

The /olio wing are excerpts from an 
hour and a half interview on July 13 
between ABC television star Dick Cavett 
and Dr. Daniel Ellsberg of Cambridge, 
the former Rand Corp. researcher who 
has admitted giving the controversial 
"Pentagon Papers" to the newspapers. 

DICK CAVETT: What's your theory on 
why the Nixon Administration did not 
seize the opportunity as some people 
have said to disassociate themselves 
from all the past administrations who are 
painted as deceptive in these papers, and 
why are they so anxious to stop the 
publication of this when it seems like 
there could have been a political motive 
for their not wanting it stopped? 

in a bind, I don't doubt. It's obvious that 
by this time it's very difficult for them to 
disassociate themselves from policies of 
the past administrations. 

I really think that it's very hard to read 
those studies and to see above all the 
sameness of policy from one ad- 
ministration to the next. First, the 
Democrat, then a Republican, one in 
which President Nixon as Vice President 
served. It is hard to really believe that 
the policy has changed in this fifth ad- 
ministration. That there has been a 
change. I am convinced that there has 
not been a change, that the fundamental 
premises of the policy are the same as 
they were under Truman, Eisenhower, 
and in particular, Kennedy and Johnson. 

So I think that President Nixon was not 
at all anxious to have the public really 
see those studies and to reach that 
conclusion for themselves. As most 
analysts writing have done. 

I think there was another reason why 
they had to move the way they have, and 
the way they are continuing to move... I 
think that the very revelation of the 
papers strikes at the system of secrecy 
which has in fact been essential to per- 
petuating this particular policy. It's a 
policy that I think no President has felt 
confident he could afford to expose to the 
public in a frank way and get public 
support. He needed an effective system 
of secrecy, that is a system of deterrents, 
of sanctions, of fears that would keep 
public officials from revealing what they 
knew to be deceptions and crimes in 
order that the policy could persist. 

So I think that the spectacle of the 
newspapers and courts challenging this 
concealment by the Administration 
struck at the heart of the Ad- 
ministration's policy currently just as it 
would have in any earlier ad- 
ministration. So I think that President 
Nixon has moved against it as probably 
any other administration earlier would 
have felt it had to do... 

CAVETT: Dean Rusk has said as one 
of the principals in this, that in a sense 
you can't take the papers all that 
seriously, the Pentagon Papers, because 
a lot of these things were more or less 
contingency plans, and there are always 
contingency plans going on all over the 
place for things that nobody ever plans to 
do. .Where does the truth of that lie? 

ELLSBERG: You may recall that the 
word options and alternatives was a very 
popular word in the Kennedy years. It 
was a trademark. Give me options, give 
me alternatives. Well, the truth was that, 
to an amazing degree one found that 
one's naive civilian notions that military 
people are always multiplying plans to 
suit every possible contingency were 
very far from the fact, and to get military 
staffs, no matter how large, to stop 
polishing up the one plan that was their 
recommendation should be used in .. 
situation to imagining some alternative 
was extremely difficult and was 
regarded as one of the great 
achievements of Defense Secretary 

You really could follow the rule of 
thumb that most staffs, military and 
civilian, generate contingency plans that 
they want to see enacted, and when you 
see one really being worked out in any 
detail you can assume that somebody is 
proposing it. But that's all just by the 
way. The fact is that the plans that we 
are referring to here in '64 and '65 — 

CAVETT: Plans to bomb North 

ELLSBERG: Plans to bomb North 
Vietnam, the first thing to say about 
them is to start at the end; ^ey were 
plans that were carried out, and that's 
the real interest. What we a^e rfeading 
then are the origins of plans that^ere in 
fact carried out and carried out in ways 
that really never were made fully public 
and reasons never made public. They 
were also at the time they were written 
plans expected to be used by the people 
writing them, working on them, plans 
that were proposed and recommended by 
the President's major advisors. 

In fact, all of the President's major 
advisors. It is true, I think, that a 
misleading impression has been given 
that the President himself had made 
decisions in mid-year or late in '64, which 
my own impression is he didn't finally 
make until early in '65; but that doesn't 
mean that those plans were not being 
seriously recommended, and not merely 
designed throughout '64. 

CAVETT: It is important to pin that 
down then. Was the electorate lied to then 
in the '64 election, or were they sort of 
lied to, or were they just not given all the 
information? What is the right phrase for 

ELLSBERG: Certainly a very 
misleading impression was given in 
many ways, not so much about what the 
President had decided to do as to what 
advice he was receiving, and what aims 
he was pursuing. The fact is that the 
President did give the impression that 
there were a few, just to use a harsh 
word, a few nuts who imagined that we 
might go north and bomb. I think the 
audiences were led to infer that he was 
really referring to people outside the 
administration, namely, his principal 
opponent, Mr. Barry Goldwater, or 
perhaps to Sen. Goldwater's allies in the 
uniformed services. 

Now, that was far from true. The fact 
was that the major civilian advisors of 
President Johnson, the men that he had 
inherited from President Kennedy, and 
whom he maintained in most cases right 
through his term of office, were 
unanimous as early as the spring of '64 in 
recommending, along with the military, 
that a program of bombing go along. 

Certainly I think the public would have 
found that very far from the impression 
that they were being led to believe. 

CAVETT: Sen. Goldwater was here the 
other night and when I mentioned you 
were going to be here, he said ask him 
why he decided to break the law. And 
referred to you in connection with 
Benedict Arnold. 

ELLSBERG: You know, I don't find it 
amusing to be called a traitor, although I 
am by a lot of people, given the way I've 
spent my life and what I was trying to do. 

On the question of breaking the law I'm 
not aware yet whether I have broken the 
law. That's something in our system of 
government Sen. Goldwater of course 
doesn't determine. Even John Mitchell 
doesn't determine whether I've broken a 
law, or President Nixon. 

I found that people aren't always clear 
on some of these things and where we are 
seeing quite an acting out of con- 
stitutional roles and conceptions at this 
moment, we do have an independent 
judiciary and I'm certain that a court 
and a jury will address the question of 
whether I've broken the law and if I have 
I'll go to prison for it. 

Certainly on the question of whether 
crimes have been committed or laws 
have been broken I don't have any doubt 
after reading these papers that I was 
involved in there's been a lot of law- 
breaking over the last 25 years. The UN 
Charter, international assurances at 
Geneva, Hague conventions on prisoners 
by us, and by the other side of course, the 
Constitution. That's my opinion as a 
layman. I would like to see those things 
tested in the courts. I think it would be 
healthy for us. I'm not sure what will 
happen, but maybe now that the in- 
formation is available it will happen. 

CAVETT: What is the principle here 
then for someone to make such a decision 
as you've made? The frequent phrase, 
where does he get the authority to decide 

that he is right in releasing this in- 
formation? When does a man have the 
right to break an oath that he's taken? 
What is the philosophical principle? How 
do you decide to do that? 

ELLSBERG: Obviously what I was 
faced with was what seemed to me to be a 
conflict of loyalties; loyalties to the 
security regulations of the Department of 
Defense to which I'd been very loyal for 
12 years, I now think too loyal, too ab- 
solutely loyal. Loyalty to a boss, loyalty 
to superiors. Again, I know what that 
means. I know what it feels like. I've 
made decisions the same way; but I now 
found myself confronting obligations that 
had not been sufficiently vivid for nte 
earlier, it seemed to me. Obligations to 
the American public, to the Constitution, 
to the ability of Congress and the courts 
to deal with their function, and 
obligations, I must say, to the people of 
Vietnam that I had the opportunity to 
meet and to have feeling for while I was 
over there. 

I found myself then with simply a very 
difficult decision. Obviously, my opinion 
as to how to weigh those loyalties is 
different from that of Sen. Gdldwater. 
He's told us that as the candidate of a 
major party he was aware that the 
President was, in his opinion, misleading 
the public on matters of life and death for 
Americans and for Vietnamese and was 
leading them into a war in a way that 
they were being misinformed about. He 
look his responsibilities, I guess, as a 
general in the Air Force and as a 
safeguarder of secrets in Congress above 
what he must have felt, I hope, as some 
challenge to reveal that information to 
the American public, and he chose not to 
reveal it; he's told us that now. So, faced 
with that decision he made a different 
choice. I think he was mistaken... 

CAVETT: How do you account for the 
ignoring of CIA advice that comes out in 
the papers, the CIA opinion that the 
bombing was not effective, the CIA 
opinion that the domino theory was not 
anything to worry about, the opinion that 
Mr. Nixon. ..could pull out and nothing 
significant would change for a 

ELLSBERG: It's a good question. 
When I say that I was confronted with 
puzzles after I first got into the study, this 
was one of the major ones. It was 
astonishing to discover that the CIA 
estimates, especially of the Fifties, had 
been as accurate as they were. That was 
the first surprise, simply this is not a 
country that knows very much about 
Indochina. We have I think two people 
with tenure, or did until recently, who 
could speak Vietnamese in the academic 
community. They both came out of the 
intelligence community in World War II. 
So I didn't expect these estimates to be 
very good. It was plausible that we had 
been misled, and to discover that the 
estimates gave in fact very good 
predictions was amazing. 

The next question was how could a 
succession of Presidents have ignored 
these the way they did? That was a 
puzzle. I had to work with it for a long 
time. I've got some answers now. I'm not 
certain of the answer, but obviously it 
indicates, to some degree it was a 
question of putting their own gut feelings, 
intuitive feelings against these people 
who had had experience in estimating. I 
think to a large extent it was a feeling of 
what they were being told was irrelevant. 
What they were being told was there was 
no way to win this war. But the 
Presidents knew that. They knew that. 
They believed that. They didn't tell the 
public that, but I conclude they knew 
that. What they did know was they didn't 
have to lose; if they could keep certain 
things secret enough, if they could keep 
the estimates secret enough, if they could 
be misleading about the estimates and 
talk about optimism when the estimates 
talked pessimism, if they could get the 
Congress to support the sending of 
Americans over there and the sending of 
American planes against North Vietnam 
they could keep from losing. And they 
were right. 

In that sense the 25 years from the 
perspective of Presidents is not a record 
of failure, it's a record of success. 
They've always succeeded year by year 

in postponing failure while they 
remained in office. 

CAVETT: It has been said that we 
have fought this war to prevent World 
War III and that at least is a justification 
of it. Mr. Rusk said something along 
those lines in an NBC interview. A 
rationale has been that it has prevented 
World War III. 

ELLSBERG: That would explain a lot, 
wouldn't it? It would cover a lot. It would 
cover a lot of crimes and sins if that is 
what you are doing... 

In other words, anyone who wanted to 
believe that we were preventing the fall 
of Southeast Asia, let alone World War 
III, had to ignore what he was being told 
by the intelligence analysts, who simply 
deny this. 

Nevertheless, I know very well that 
that kind of conception was sincerely 
held by most of the people writing this. 
And it really addresses the question of 
how they could have done what Ihey did 
do. I shared that myself. It's one of those 
things where I know how it feels to 
believe that, crazy as it may seem, 
because I did believe it. 

If you ask how could men this in- 
telligent have held on so long to a con- 
ception that was so out of touch with 
reality you either have to believe they 
I were extraordinarily rigid or moronic, 
which they weren't or that there was 
something about that way of looking at 
the problem that was very convenient, 
very necessary for them. 

I think that - well, notice what the 
World War II conception does for you. To 
see a war as being against a very 
powerful opponent with world security at 
stake, simply screens out any moral 
dimension. It answers all those questions 
of are we justified, do we have the right 
to do these things? So it makes the war 
much easier to bear, the killing that you 
find yourself ordering, much easier to 

Another side is that it's a very self- 
confirming notion of members of the 
executive. World War II type conflict, as 
we saw we had with Russia in the late 
40s, but we persist in seeing now, tells 
members of the Executive that they are 
right to exclude Congress, to exclude the 
public, to censor newspapers as we're 
seeing now happening, to deceive, to 
adopt all the tricks of the opponent 
because you have to do it to survive. 

And so we find inelligent men telling 
themselves, as the English did with 
Nasser, that they're fighting Hitler; 
Nasser is Hitler. Or that Ho Chi Minh is 
Hitler, or that Castro is Hitler. I think it 
really, there's very obviously a desire 
there to have the opponent be Hitler, to 
see every opponent as Hitler. I think that 
this explains a great deal of what's been 
going on... 

CAVETT: Is there any way to answer 
in .30 seconds what people can do? 

ELLSBERG: I think they can read 
these papers...I really hope that they're 
read widely by officials, and by citizens, 
by the women and children. I hope 
they're read by the former officials, 
among other things, and that they decide 
what they ought to do after they've read 
that record. But I think one thing the 
people will conclude when they've read it 
is that they have not asked enough, that 
they have not expected enough or 
demanded enough in the way of boldness, 
in the way of responsibility from their 
public servants. And I think that they as 
individuals should act to make them- 
selves visible and audible to those public 
servants and to tell them it is not ac- 
ceptable to us for you to make choices 
involving political recriminations in this 
country that lead to these deaths of our 
sons and Vietnamese sons; it is not ac- 
ceptable to say in order to be re-elected I 
must keep my mouth shut when I know 
important crimes a J truths that are 
being concealed. 

We should not forgive them for that. 
We should be less tolerant of that. Make 
that known and I think that our con- 
stitution will continue to function, as I 
think it is this month, better than it has 
been in the past.

• .<*Hi 

Ken Replies To Gil: 

To the editor: 

I was rather distressed by the "in- 
formation" provided in Gilbert Salk's draft 
counseling column (Statesman, July 8, 1971) 
concerning the present status of the draft and 
Selective Service. 

A number of statements in this column 
were factually incorrect and many of the 
conclusions made were, in my estimation, 
gravely misleading. To point out some 
specific factual errors: Mr. Salk claims that 
since "the draft law" has expired, therefore 
the Selective . Service System "no longer 
exists" and "local boards have no authority to 
order people to report for physicals" and 
"there is no law requiring that eighteen-year- 
olds register" for the draft. Indeed, for the 
$3600-salary Mr. Salk is being paid out of 
student funds to offer draft advice, he might 
have served his clientele more ably by 
reading the newspapers (or even the Selec- 
tive Service Act itself). In simple language, it 
should be noted that only the President's 
power to induct has been effected; and even 
here the President's induction authority has 
not been completely removed but merely 
curtailed. For Section 17 (c) of the Selective 
Service Act states: 

Notwithstanding any other provisions 
of this title, no person shall be inducted 
for training and service in the Armed 
Forces after July 1, 1971, except 
persons now or hereafter deferred 
under Section 6 of this title after the 
basis for such deferment ceases to 
According to Selective Service News, 

February, 1971, there were, as of last 
December 31st, over 13 million registrants 
'deferred under Section 6" in classes such as 
I-'V, I-S, and II-S. When these deferments 
expire, those registrants can theoretically be 
drafted. In addition, anyone who is now I-A 
but who once was deferred "under Section 6" 
is subject to induction as well. SS Director 
Curtis Tarr at present has no intention of 
invoking the 17 (c) escape clause, although he 
may change his mind if Congress has not 
renewed the President's induction authority 
by September. 

It should be noted, further, that except for 
physicals (which have been cancelled 
because of their time relationship with in- 
ductions), draft boards in Massachusetts are 
continuing their usual procedures involving 
registration, classification, and appeals- 
since authority for these procedures has not 
expired. Only total repeal of the Selective 
Service Act would actually render all 
Selective Service operations illegitimate. 
While the moral illegitimacy of Selective 
Service can easily be proved, I would not 
suggest, as Mr. Salk does, that any registrant 
visit his local draft board and walk off with 
his SS file. Such an action may sound 
'uroovy," but it will merely place the 
registrant in danger of arrest and 
prosecution. Those persons who are 
responsible enough to read and understand 
the law should exert their maximum effort in 
lobbying for repeal of the Selective Service 
Act, rather than playing ill-advised games. 

And Curtis Replies To Both: 

Citing uncertainties caused by the present lapse in induction authority. 
Selective Service Director Curtis W. Tarr today asked all of his 4.100 local 
boards to make a maximum effort to inform draft-age men about the 
present status of the draft and the registrant's relationship to the 
Selective Service System. 

In a two-page letter mailed today, the Draft Director said, "It is 
essential that we communicate to all registrants that the registration, 
classification, and examination functions of the Selective Service System 
ire continuing on a 'business as usual" basis and that there is a high 
probability that the induction authority for those who have never had a 
deferment will be reinstituted in the near future." Tarr asked the local 
boards to explain the present situation to local news media, and to enclose 
notices in letters outlining the responsibilities of draft-age men who face 
possible induction under the current Selective Service regulations. 

Tarr's letter said that he believes that many young men erroneously 
think that the Selective Service Act has expired and that the System has 
been terminated. Accordingly, he urged the local boards to inform the 
young men that they may be unintentionally breaking the law by failing 
to register at age 18, by failing to notify their boards of changes in status, 
or by failing to report, if ordered, for their preinduction physical 

Karlier this month, Tarr instructed his local boards to continue the 
registration and classification of draft-age men and to continue ordering 
for preinduction examinations those who may be needed to fill calls 
(luring the remainder of 1971. 


The Summer Statesman 



THURSDAY, JULY 29, 1971 

Mao Goes Republican? 


Nixon has been, and indeed should be, 
viewed with abhorrence by the American 
left, but his pronouncements on China 
and his forthcoming junket to mainland 
China should be regarded with the ut- 
most of caution by both liberals and 
radicals. The normalization of relations 
with the Peoples' Republic of China (and 
indeed the recognition that the world's 
most populous country does exist ac- 
tually and diplomatically) is a position 
which has been supported by liberals and 
radicals for years. It is interesting that 
Nixon is the President to see the fruition 
of this position, but it is far from in- 
credulous. As a matter of fact, many 
observers were willing to predict such a 
move by Nixon. 

With mood of liberals, and even some 
radicals, running in the enthusiastic 
vein, this observer believes the left-wing 
euphoria to be almost totally unfounded, 
and certainly premature at best. Nixon 
should not be underestimated, nor should 
his motives be free from the most ex- 
cruciating critical evaluation. 

At this point in time Nixon most 
definitely feels the necessity of making 
some small concession to liberals, and 
the diplomatic recognition of the 
Peoples' Republic of China can be viewed 
as just such a concession. But, it is not to 
please liberals that Nixon has taken this 
move, at least not primarily. A com- 
bination of factors has allowed Nixon to 
make a move toward China. 

The Vietnamization policy in Indo- 
China is apparently about as effective as 
critics predicted, namely, ineffective, 
and Nixon is obviously in varying 
degrees of political trouble on different 
fronts. The prisoner of war issue has 
backfired on him, he has done next to 
nothing for Black Americans, but even 
his policy of benign neglect has been too 
much for his Southern strategy to long 
endure. His housing policy has, from all 
published data, actually retarded the 
availability of housing, unemployment 
soars, and there is no slow down in the 
ra*e of inflation. Nixon's popularity is 
low enough to worry any national official, 
let alone an incumbent President with 
second term hopes and a manic desire to 
be liked and respected. Nixon must 
grandstand if he is to maintain or regain 
any viability, therefore, enter the Mao 

crowd. . ,, 

China (this observer uses 'Chma to 
refer to the Peoples' Republic of China, 
the Nationalist Chinese can hold no claim 
to that title and should be referred to as 
Taiwanese) has come far since the 
revolution and is now ready to exert 
some real power in the community of 
nations. It is certainly regretable that 
China apparently sees world trade (and 
trade with the United States) as such a 
driving force in its present situation as to 
prostitute itself to Nixon and Kissinger. 
And, if the underlying hints at an Asian- 
American conference on Viet-Nam and 
Indo-China are indeed true, China is 

exhibiting the kind of big-power, nation- 
state, political maneuvering which this 
observer (and much of the American 
left) finds abhorrent, as does Hanoi by all 
reports. Any nation which actively seeks 
diplomatic recognition by the United 
States of American cannot be all 
together, but this is merely a general 
criticism and reflects this observers 

An important fact to remember is that 
Nixon is able to make overtures to China 
due to the very fact that his anti- 
Communism is so rabid and without 
question. A Democratic President would 
have immediately have been labeled a 
"pinko" if he had made the same 
overtures. What does this fact have to do 
with Nixon's moves specifically? Well, as 
all students of American foreign policy 
should know, Nixon has always been an 
ardent supporter of John Foster Dulles' 
"Domino Theory" and probably still 
steadfastly holds to it. If the ad- 
ministration believes that the inclusion of 
China in talks aimed at ending the Indo- 
China conflict will bring the conflict to a 
speedy finish one must question the 
reasoning of the administration. It seems 
clear to this observer that the powers 
that be within the Nixon administration 
are clearly being guided by an undying 
belief in the applicability of the Domino 
Theory. The American left must concern 
itself with the distinct possibility that 
Nixon's advances toward China are in 
fact tempered by a belief that China is 

.the villain behind the North Vietnamese 
and thus the Chinese can end the war by 
unilaterally changing policy. The fact 
that the Soviet Union is aiding Hanoi, and 
the fact that the North Vietnamese are 
engaged in a war of national liberation is 
apparently lost at both the Washington 
and Peking level. 

There is no doubt that China can 
probably exert some diplomatic pressure 
in Hanoi, but the hypothesis that Peking 
can either control or exert decisive 
pressure over Hanoi is false, if one is 
willing to take Hanoi seriously (as this 
observer in fact does). Ho Chi Minh and 
his followers should, by now, have im- 
pressed most observers with their 
consistency, bravery, and their total 
committment to the people of Vietnam, 
as well as the popularity of the govern- 
ment with the North Vietnamese people. 
If China attempts to interfere in the 
affairs of Hanoi it could cause serious 
repercussions in Moscow. This may be 
the end of all of the Nixon policy: To 
divide the "world Communist con- 
spiracy". Whatever the actual design of 
Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger, 
William Rogers, et al is, it is safe for the 
American left to assume that they are up 
to no good. It may be painful to admit 
what the indications point to, namely that 
China has reached diplomatic puberty 
and shall become just another big power 
seeking lebensraum.

Grades, "the trading stamps of 
American supermarket schools," 
could improve American education 
by leaving the scene, according to 
a UMass professor who has 
recently co-authored a book 
subtitled "The Grading Game in 
American Education." 

Prof. Sidney B. Simon, whose 
book, "Wad-ja-get?" was 
published this summer, believes 
A,B,C,D grades serve no positive 
purpose in education, as far as 
student learning is concerned. 

Many incompetent teachers use 
grades to place the blame for not 
learning on the student, while the 
blame rightfully belongs to the 
teacher who does not give the 
students enough content to keep 
them interested in the subject, 
according to Prof. Simon, a 
teacher of education of the self and 
value clarification at the UMass 
School of Education. 

Grades also keep the students in 
their place, in a lower status than 
the teacher, and force "less than 
honest" relationships between 
student and teacher, he says. At 
the UMass School of Education, 
Prof. Simon notes, students 
compliment and criticize teachers 
without fear of grade penalty, or 
raised eyebrows from fellow 
students. Since 1969 the School has 
had no letter grades, just "pass" or 

Grades also encourage com- 
petition between students, and do 
not motivate students, according to 
the professor of education. The 
"grading game," he says, hurts 
the "A" student as well as the "F" 
student; because while the failer is 
having his pride squashed, the 
achiever is learning to depend too 
much on approval of others. He 
finds that this dependency upon 
approval of oikers continues 
through college, and that these 
"grade grubbers" are often no 
more intelligent than students who 
get lower grades. Take college 
board scores, for example. As do 
many educators, Dr. Simon finds 
the college entrance examinations 
unsatisfactory. Many times, he 

feels, a student does poorly on the 
multiple choice questions because 
he knows too much to make a clear 

But how should students be 
judged for entrance to college? Dr. 
Simon suggests some minimum 
requirement, such as a letter of 
recommendation from a teacher. A 
student who wanted to go on to 
college would have to find one 
teacher who thought he could make 

"There should be no grades. 
There should be no failure," Prof. 
Simon states, explaining that low 
grades "do not motivate anyone, 
and do almost nothing to contribute 
to a student's wanting to restudy 
something he hasn't learned." 

Schools without grades. Most 
people find that a difficult concept 
to follow, he says, because "all 
their lives they have been willing to 
be squeezed into a single letter of 
the alphabet." Prof. Simon prefers 
to give students written evaluation 
of their school work, a technique he 
admits could be even more sub- 
jective than grades, but one which 
he feels gives the student or parent 
more understanding of the 
student's accomplishments and the 
teacher's expectations. 

At Temple University, where he 
taught before coming to UMass in 
1969, he tried his evaluation 
technique and became involved in 
a grading controversy with the 
administration. So, he came to the 
UMass School of Education which 
that year began a pass-fail system 
of grading. 

Recognizing that any changes in 

the grading system in American 

education must be gradual, Prof. 

Simon suggests beginning with 

college and high school and going 

into the lower grades "once we've 

lived a few years with the new 

pleasures that no-grading will 

bring." These "new pleasures" 

would include "more honest" 

relationships between teachers 

aail students, employment of more 

competent teachers, improved 

self-evaluation by students, and 

more interest in learning. 

UMass Student, Killed in Auto Crash 

UMass Track Team co-captain, Thomas Jasmin and a Leverett 
girl who ran crosscountry with him, Patricia Thompson were killed 
Monday when the Volkswagen they were in collided with a ten- 
wheel dump truck on Route 9 in Amherst. Both Jasmin and 
Thompson were crosscountry running enthusiasts and ran together 
in the Boston Athletic Association Marathon last April 19.

Power To The People? 

We must deal with the reality that our whole 
economic foundation is built around the con- 
cept of growth and progress. Unless we change 
our entire social, political and economic 
structure, this country is going to continue its 

economic growth. 

G.A. Schreiber, President 
of the New Mexico Public 
Service Company 
While we recognize the necessity for the 
development of additional power sources to 
serve the expanding population of particularly 
Southern California, we in Colorado will not 
stand idly by while our own environment is 
damaged beyond repair just to meet the needs 
of the City of Los Angeles. 

John D. Vanderhoof, Lieutenant 
Governor of Colorado 
These two statements crystallize the impasse of 
electric power. Our demands for power have been 
increasing at a rate ten times that of the population; 
encouragement to "live better electrically" is almost 
certain to continue this phenomenal demand for more 
electric power. Electricity, to the consumer, is cheap. 
We don't worry if we leave the lights on, the stereo 
playing all day, run the dishwasher, the vacuum, 
clothes dryer; we survive the summer with air con- 
ditioning; we build with our power tools, carve dinner 
with our electric knife, or brush our teeth with our 
electric toothbrush. But the costs of all this electricity 
is not cheap in its impact on the environment. There 
are now three main ways to generate electricity, none 
of them environmentally sound: large hydro-electric 
dams, nuclear power plants, and coal-burning power 

Right now the Four Corners region of the Southwest, 
where Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Arizona meet, 
is the focus of a confrontation between those who 
emphasize the need for power, and those who are 
concerned with our environment. Currently producing 
electricity and pollution in the desert are two coal- 
burners; three more are now under construction, 
another is in final planning stages. One of the finished 
plants, the Four Corners Power Plant, has been in 
operation since 1964 on the Navajo Indian Reservation 
near Mesa Verde National Park, in New Mexico. This 
one plant is producing 350 tons of fly ash per day: 
more than the combined totals of the cities of Los 
Angeles and New York. Some efforts to clean up are 
being made; nevertheless, it is expected that when six 
plants are completed, they will produce 200 tons of fly 
ash, 1,365 tons of sulphur oxides, 1,000 tons of nitrogen 
oxides-and 14,000 kilowatts of electricity per day. 
Long-range plans by twenty companies call for plants 
to generate a total of 36 million kilowatts by 1985. Most 
of the electricity is intended for the urban sprawl of 
Southern California; most of the pollution will 
inevitably affect the states where the plants are 

The plants are being built in the desert chiefly 
because they are too dirty to be allowed near a city. 
Another reason for their location is the cheap coal 
nearby. Also nearby are: over half the American 
Indians living on reservations; six National Parks; 
three National Recreation Areas; thirty-eight 
National Monuments; many National Historic Sites. 
The area is one of great sonic beauty and supports the 

cultures of several Indian tribes. Therefore, a 
coalition to fight the construction and operation of the 
power plants has been formed by the Native American 
Rights Fund, the Environmental Defense Fund, the 
National Wildlife Federation, the Sierra Club, and 
others. At this point they are awaiting the decision of 
the First District Court on a suit to prevent further 
Federal commitments in the area until the same court 
has had a chance to rule on the legality of the whole 
operation. Lawyers for environmentalists and Indians 
claim that the power plants are violating the National 
Environmental Policy Act, of January 1970. The Act 
requires an Environmental Impact Statement, with 
public participation in the drafting of the Statement, 
before the beginning of any project which will sub- 
stantially affect the environment. There has never 
been any Impact Statement, nor any public par- 
ticipation. Nor has there been a review by the Ad- 
visory Council on Historic Preservation, also required 
by law. Instead, Rogers Morton, Secretary of the 
Interior, has announced a moratorium on new con- 
struction for a year (this does not halt current 
operations or construction, and none of the companies 
was planning to begin any new construction this year 
anyway) and a special study, by "experts" instead of 
the Impact Statement. While awaiting the judge's 
decision on the injunction, the Sierra Club, the State of 
New Nexico, and others have filed a nuisance suit 
against Arizona Public Service Company, operators of 
Four Corners Power Plant. This is the first attempt to 
attack the actual pollution spewed out by the plant. 

So everybody waits, and the electricity and smoke 
keep coming out, and the strip-mining continues. 
Those in favor of the plants insist that we must have 
the power; those against them point to the costs that 
power companies don't consider: 
1-a region, previously beautiful, permanently scarred 

by power lines, coal transportation lines, railroads, 

service roads. 
2-once pure air filled with soot and poisons. 
3-Hopi and Navajo cultures destroyed by in- 
4-Indian mineral and water rights stolen once again 

for the enrichment of white-owned companies and 

the convenience of white metropolises. 
5-Black Mesa, sacred Hopi mountain, destroyed by 

strip-mining by the Peabody Coal Company, owned 

by Kennecot Copper (the Four Corners Plant alone 

uses 22,000 tons of coal a day.) 
6-rivers and lakes polluted with acid run-off from 

mines and thermal pollution. 
7-possible poisoning (unusually high levels of mercury 

have been found in the fish in a Navajo lake). 

The power companies have accused the en- 
vironmentalists of being "elitist." The Arizona Public 
Service Company thinks of itself as providing power to 
the people. But which people? At whose profit? At 
whose expense?

The nationally famous Berkshire Boy Choir will be one of the featured musical groups performing in 
the Marathon of the Arts sponsored by the University of MassachusettsAmherst Summer Program 
Thursday, July 29, at the Murray D. Lincoln Campus Center. Their 2 p.m. concert will be near the East 
entrance on the second level of the Campus Center and will feature a varied program of secular and 
sacred music. . 

Two puppet plays based on 
Japanese Nob plays from the 14th 
and 15th Centuries will be 
presented by the Storrs Puppet 
Theatre Thursday, July 29, at the 
University of Massachusetts- 

The plays, "Sotoba Komachi" 
and"Kantan",will begin at 8 p.m. 
near the Second Level Entrance of 
the Blue Wall Cafeteria of the 
Murray D. Lincoln Campus 
Center. Written by Kwanami and 
Seami, the plays were translated 
by Arthur Waley and will be 
sponsored by the UMass Summer 
Program Committee as part of its 
12-hour Marathon of the Arts from 
noon to midnight July 29. 

The plays, acted entirely by 
puppets, aim to combine the 
condensed, stylized, almost ab- 
stract drama of the Nob plays with 
modern music and the puppet 
stage, both of which share the 

the plays. 

"Sotoba Komachi" is a 
phychologically oriented tragedy 
imbued with Buddhistic religion. It 
deals with an ancient beggar 
woman, the poetess Komachi, who 
had been a famous beauty and is 
longing for peace and salvation or 
enlightenment, which she finds in 
traumatic fashion when the spirit 
of a lover whom she had driven to 
his death possesses her, and 
reenacts the fatal experience. 

"Kantan" is a kind of fable based 
on an ancient Chinese story. A 
traveller is lent a magic pillow 
which, when slept upon, will show 
the sleeper his possible future. The 
traveller sleeps on the pillow and in 
his dream becomes emporer of

Bonnie and Clyde 


The appearance of BONNIE AND CLYDE this Saturday and Sunday in 
the Student Union Ballroom presents an opportunity to see again one of 
the very few post-World War II American cinematic works of art. 
Because it is devoid of overt intellectuality (unlike films of Antonioni and 
Kubrick) and deals with the frequently exploited theme of American 
violence, this account of the lives of a gangster family in the 30's has not 
only failed to achieve overall critical support but drawn virulent 
reprobation from whole segments of society as well. 

There have been several film versions of the lives of Clyde Barrow and 
Bonnie Parker in the past, but historical material in these versions was so 
distorted that the two protagonists came out looking like innocent victims 
of society, and no controversy was aroused. Yet BONNIE AND CLYDE, 
which was amazingly faithful to the real life incidents, was attacked as 
fraudulent for "prettifying" crime. Such criticism is a sad commentary 
on the childish social morality of this country, which is so unsophisticated 
as to insist that one who is corrupt must also be ugly and unhappy. In real 
life as in the film, Bonnie and Clyde were personable and glamorous but 
also murderous and stupid-such is the basis of our fascination with them. 
However, the profound impact that BONNIE AND CLYDE has for us is 
not so much derived from any individual elements as it is from the overall 
film technique employed. In this regard it is so much less self-conscious 
CLYDE is often compared)~and consequently more organic and self- 
contained-that the film might be said to be McLuhanistic. 

combines his famous talent for extracting "moments of truth" from his 
actors with the craftsmanship of some of Hollywood's best technicians to 
achieve an effect of sensuous immediacy. We are pulled inside the 
narrow, fast-paced world of the Barrow gang as they experienced it. 
Psychological authenticity is more important than naturalism in order 
for the viewer to empathize with the characters. Hence the 30*s are 
evoked not so muchas they were but as we remember them (or imagine 
them to have been). The viewpoint is not sociological but internal and 
personal; the outside world is simplistically seen from the eyes of 
unregenerate thieves. To this effect the intimate problem of Clyde's 
sexual impotence is a skillful ploy used to lessen the psychological 
distance between the audience and the actors. 

As the film progresses, casual acts of violence are committed, arising 
not from any sadism inherent in the Barrows but from circumstance and 
ignorance. What is momentarily horrifying is soon bypassed and put out 
of mind. When we arrive at the couple's climactic and excruciating an- 
nihilation (a scene shot and edited to near perfection) the cathartic slap 
in the face we receive has a two-fold virtue. First we are forced to dwell 
on and experience the true nature of the violence we were earlier per- 
mitted to dismiss. And second, we realize that evil or corruption, when 
seen from the inside, is really ignorance and self-indulgence-precisely 
that which we have laughed at and enjoyed throughout the film. We 
haven't been told the truth; we've experienced it.

Correction, Northampton, 

The broadcast will be carried by 
WFCR-FM (88.5) which is located 
at the University of 
Massachusetts-Amherst campus 
and is the public radio service 
operated by the Five College Area 
(Amherst. Smith, Mount Holyoke, 
and Hampshire Colleges, and 

UMass.) ^ , 

Present with Attorney General 
Quinn and the Hampshire inmates 
will be Richard Howland, UMass 
Student Senate attorney; Merton 
Burt, deputy master of the House 
of Correction; and Mark Hills of 
WFCR's "Rapping Nightly 

the methodone witnarawai 
program, the general problem of 
drug addiction in Massachusetts, 
and how that problem effects the 
jails; and problems of obtaining 
parole-especially these days with 
jobs difficult to find. 

The inmates will talk about 
themselves-their backgrounds, 
their problems as prisoners, and 
what programs and help await 
them on the outside. Attorney 
General Quinn will be asked to 
discuss the correctional system in 
Massachusetts, compare it with 
those in other states, and tell what 
improvements may be made. He 
will also be asked how county jails 

fit into the state prison system. 


Ronald M. Fredrickson, 

associate professor of education at 
UMass was named president-elect 
of the Massachusetts Personnel 
and Guidance Association 
(MPGA) in a recent state-wide 

Dr. Fredrickson, a charter 
member of MPGA, edited the 
organization's newsletter for two 
years. He is a faculty member of 
the human relations center at the 
UMass School of Education and is 
involved in the graduate program 
to prepare counselors for schools, 
community agencies, universities 
and clinics. 

He has conducted research and 
written numerous articles about 

counselor education, 
children (whom he 
"multipotential youth"), guidance 
paraprofessional training, 
ungraded schools, and the inquiry 
role approach to learning. 

Prof. Fredrickson will be 
president-elect for one year. When 
he assumes the MPGA presidency 
in June, 1972, he will work toward 
forming alliances between the 
MPGA and other organizations 
with similar goals. He feels such 
organizations would be more ef- 
fective if they worked together. 

He sees the alliance as a strong 
one including school and college 
guidance and counseling per- 
sonnel; personnel and counseling 
people of industry; clinics; and 
community and state 

organizations. "The days of 
passive guidance personnel are 
gone," says Prof. Fredrickson.

"If a homeowner notices dieback 
near the top of his maple tree and 
reddish-brown scorch on the 
margin of the leaves, he should 
water the surrounding area, at 
least during dry periods." 

This timely advice on roadside 
maple decline, a problem of crisis 
proportions in some Massachusetts 
communities, is a by-product of 
student research done in last 
semester's Science, Technology 
and Society course at UMass in 
Amherst. A three-student team 
researched the maple dieback 
problem, pinpointed a major cause 
and made recommendations. 

According to the students, the 
major cause is slow dehydration. 
Maples get their food and water 
close to the surface of the soil, 
sending out shallow roots 25 feet or 
more from the base of the tree. 
Paving filling and other con- 
struction over these roots can kill a 
large portion of the root system, 
putting the tree under severe 
ecological stress. The more or less 
continual drought that began in 
New England in the late 1950's is 
pushing the already stressed 

maples over the edge 

The students point out that "in 
the case of a roadside tree, 
blacktop prevents a root system 
from developing at all on one side. 
Usually the tree will try to com- 
pensate by extending its root 
system on the side away from the 
road This area thus becomes 
extremely critical to the life 
support of the tree and if the roots 
there are disturbed, the resulting 
additional stress can be fatal." 

Unfortunately, this additional 
stress is being created for many 
trees through road widening, 
sidewalk laying, building con- 
struction and underground pipe 
work The authors consulted with 
Dr Walter Banfield, UMass plant 
pathology specialist, and came up 
with watering as a solution. 

Banfield did an experiment with 
two adjoining maples showing 
decline symptoms. Watering one 
. . — ♦ ♦Ko nthpr over two 
comeback and the non-watered 
tree continued to decline. Although 
neither tree was watered the next 
year, the watered tree continued to 
flourish, probably because its root 
system increased in size and 
capacity, according to Banfield. 
In addition to watering, the 
homeowner can follow this 
suggestion: when planting a 
shallow rooted tree like the maple, 
you increase its survival chances if 
you give it at least 15 feet of un- 
disturbed earth on all sides. 

The UMass students also noted 
that "if contractors knew a little 
more about the root systems of 
trees like the maple they might be 
less inclined to merely put little 
fences around them. Rather they 
should plan on not getting closer 
than 25 feet of the base. And if 
public works departments knew 
that in widening a road or 
repairing a water main they were 
signing the death warrant of 
nearby roadside maples they 
might consider planting new ones 
farther back from the road before 
the old ones actually died." 

The student authors are John 
Grahame of Amherst, Coley 
Blodgett of Passaic, N.J., and Don 
Waller of Indianapolis, Ind. The 
latter is an Amherst College 
student taking the course under the 
Five-College exchange program.

The appointment of Mrs. 
Eleanor M. Balling as the 1971-72 
Five College Fellow was an- 
nounced today by North Burn, the 
Five College Coordinator. Mrs. 
Balling was graduated cum laude 
from the UMass in 1970 with a 
Bachelor of Arts degree in English. 
She is currently completing 

the UriiTeTs'Ay.^^'- ^ ^^''^' °^ 
As an undergraduate at the 
University of Massachusetts, Mrs. 
Balling served as Editorial Editor 
of the Massachusetts Daily 
Collegian (1967-68), was selected to 
be a dormitory counselor (1968-70), 
and worked each summer (1967- 
70), with the University's Fresh- 
man Orientation Program in the 
capacity of academic advisor, 
personal counselor, and ad- 
ministrative assistant. Upon 
graduation, Mrs. Balling was 
appointed Residence Director of a 
women's dormitory, John Quincy 
Adams-Middle, at the University of 
Massachusetts for 1970-71. 

As the 1971-72 Five College 
Fellow, Mrs. Balling will work full 
time for one year on a diverse 
range of projects under the 
supervision of the Five College 
Coordinator to further cooperation 
among Amherst College, Hamp- 
shire College, Mount Holyoke 
College, Smith College, and the 

University of Massachusetts. 


The title of the play, or rather, 
the multi-media experience based 
on Shakespeare's The Tempest is 
World. Play "71 Workshop started 
by Marty Calabrese and Tom Dc 
Felice is a group of students from 
the UMass who have formed a 
small theatre company. The first 
production of the year LUV was 

the author of World. He says that 
World is an experience and not 
particularly a play. It is not just 
limited to the narrow confines of 
the theatrical conventions. World 
is an assault on the aesthetics by 
way of sight and sound and that 
sense of identity that man has for 
his and his fellow man's position in 
the world he has inherited. The 
only things that remain of the 
original Tempest are the ideas and 
personal relationships. The play 
exists in three worlds: the past, the 
present, and the future. The 
language is done in a modern 
poetic vein, the issues are con- 
temporary, the environment, and 
the personal relationships of 
family and friends and of a ruler

total theatre. The director, Mary 
Ann Tolka says that World is an 
ensembleof actors playing. There is 
no pretense that a play is going on. 
We tell the audience, "Look at us 
we're playing for you." Even the 
scenery does not pretend to be 
anything other than what it ap- 
pears to be-plastics and lights. 
Carol Lee Harrington has designed 
an environment rather than a set 
for World. The entire room of the 
Folklore Center is the playing 
area. The audience sits on pillows 
and some stools and chairs all 
around the room. The idea behind 
to design of the room is to create a 
plastics and lights. Also there are 
special effects used in the play. 
Slides are projected on hidden 
screens in the room and are used 
continually to make a running 
commentary on the experience. 
World also has a musical score. 
Rather than being a typical 
musical play score, World has a 
score that is close to that of a 
movie. Michael Gery is the music 
coordinator. He has also written 
some original music that is in- 
cluded with the recorded music of 
the Beatles, Jefferson Airplane, 
Grand Funk Railroad, and others. 


This quiet town of 13,000 citizens 
as always been dominated by its 
istitutions of higher learning. 
Some citizens now fear that it will

Because the citizens are out

be the extreme example of the

time to move." 

Since then, there has been time 

or reflection. Along the main

that we never realized." 

Doubts People Will Talk 

At the counter of a small 

restaurant, a traveling salesman 

confides: "They are worried sick 

this thing, hut I doubt if they

will talk to you about it. These 
schools are the economic lifeblood 
of the town, and no businessman is 
going to talk publicly and take a 
chance of hurting his business." 

Farther down the street, a real 
estate dealer said, "I'm not going to 
talk to you about it. I don't like it, 
and I don't think they should vote 
here, but you're not going to get a 
statement from me, and that's it." 

Two simple sets of facts explain 
both the fear of the student vote and 
the reluctance of the business 
community to discuss the matter. 

Education is the main business of 
Amherst. And, with a voting 
population of 6,037 "established" 
residents, there is no doubt that an 
organized effort by the 21,000 
students could politically control 
the town from local offices up 
♦hrough Presidential preferential 

Perhaps because to them the 
threat is more personal, those in 
volved in the political life of the 
community are more likely to talk 
about it. 

"If they're going to vote here we 
ought to bring back the poll tax," 
said Ann Whalen, who for 27 years 
has been a representative to the 
annual town meetings. "They don't 
pay taxes t.ere, so why should they 
vote here? I think we have an ex 
cellent government, and they want 
to bring it down. I don't object to 
change, but they are out to make a 
radical change " 

Fears Competition 

Miss Whalen makes it plain that 
she equates good government with 
traditional government and, in part 
at least, to her own political sur 

"I would hate to have stiff 
competition for the town meeting 
spot," she said. "I've gotten elected 
for 27 years without campaigning. 
If I had competition, I'd have to get 
out and campaign." 

Mrs. Pat Fischer, Republican 
town chairman, always seems to be 
smiling, and in seven years of 
activity with the Republican party 
she has had plenty of reason to 
smile she has never lost an election. 
But concern forces its way through 
the smile now. She has read the 
statistics that show students have 
registered 3 to 1 Democratic in 
other states. 

"I just don't think they should 
vote here they're only part time 
residents," she said. "Ninety five 
per cent of them go home every 
weekend. They'll register here 
because it's convenient, and they're 
almost sure to defeat some of our 
officeholders They could take over 
the local party machinery if they 

"No other class of people have 
been given this choice of where they 
want to vote, and I think the town 
should refuse to register them and 
take the whole thing to court." 

Town Manager Allen L. Torrey, 
howover, wonders about such a 

possibility. "I think there is serious 
doubt whether a town meeting 
would vote the funds to- fight this 
thing in court remember, a lot of 
our presently registered voters are 
on the staff or faculty of these 
schools," he said. 

Although the town's election 
commissioners are opposed to 
registering students, they have 
abided by the Attorney General's 

Andrew E. Smith, a 22 year old 
Hampshire College student from 
Ohio, was Amherst's first student to 
register after the ruling. 

"I think it's silly to worry about 
students taking over the town," he 
said. "I really can't envision that 
ever happening. But there are 
things here that more directly 
affect me than things back in Ohio, 
and I want to have a voice in them. 
Housing, for example. There's a 
real need for low income housing, 
and I think we should elect a 
selectman to reflect that." 

On other matters, Mr. Smith gave 
clear evidence that he had carefully 
considered his role as a student 
voter. He will not, he said, par 
ticipate in matters of Amherst's 
public school system because he 
has no children in school. 

"But I have as much right to vote 
here as anybody," he said. "I have 
my personal concern while I am 
here, and I'll be representing the 
interests of future student 
_populations just as a resident is 

voting with the future interest of his 
own child in mind now." 

While those familiar with Mr 
Smith's views agree that theii 
concern "for what the students 
might do" could be exaggerated 
others on the Amherst Town 
Common last week found plenty of 
evidence for fear of radical change. 
A Community Union 
An organization of young people 
called People's Community Union, 
has organized a food cooperative. A 
sign bearing a red fist clenching a 
yellow squash with the words 
"Squash the State; the People's 
Food Conspiracy," decorated the 
cooperative's distribution tables in 
the Common last week. 

"We plan," said John Clayton, 
one of the union's organizers, "a big 
voter registration drive in the fall, 
and by the time the local elections 
come up in February we expect to 
be able to elect some town of 

Only last week, he said, town 
officials forced the cooperative out 
of the house that it had used for food 

"They told us the house wasn't 
zoned for business," Mr Clayton 
said "And, do you know what we 
told them?"" He motioned in the 
direction of the Town Hall and 
commercial district. ""We fold 
them' "When we get in power, 
maybe we'll run you out.' "

Big Business - Ripoff 


Well, it looks as if the American consumers have been 
blown off again by the big business interests. U.S. Steel, 
not about to accept a reduction in profits due to the 
recently negotiatea contract with the Steelworkers Union, 
has announced a price increase of eight percent on its most 
widely used products. 

We can remember when President Kennedy was faced 
with a similar situation. We remember him standing fast 
against the price hikes. Few of us expect the same from 
our impotent Republican leader. That Nixon lacks the 
fiber to stand fast against a price increase is probably not 
a true statement, Nixon, more likely, lacks the will to do it. 
It costs money to run for President, and non-business 
money goes primarily to liberal candidates (no one would 
be so crash as to describe Nixon as a liberal). Nixon is the 
political, moral, and philosophical personification of big 
business in the highest political circle of Corporate 
America. For him there can be little maneuverability in an 
issue such as this. 

No doubt Nixon is distressed by the announced increase 
in prices by the nation's largest steel producer and the 
pacesetter for American industry, including the other steel 
companies as well as such giants as General Motors and 
Ford, but, undoubtedly Nixon, as well as his ideological 
cronies, has already placed the blame on the working-man

The recent statement in your 
paper of Glenn Elters on last 
spring's action on the proposed 
unicameral Senate is inaccurate in 
several respects and as a con- 
sequence distorted in its con- 

First of all he glosses over the 
many months of inactivity by the 
Governance Commission which 
resulted in the Commission's not 
making the preliminary report it 
was supposed to in the fall of 1970, 
which would have given an op- 
portunity for early discussion and 
for modification of the proposal in 
the light of the discussion. Instead 
a final report was made late this 
spring when adequate discussion 
was impossible; and a deadline for 
action was proposed which-in view 
of the crowded agenda of the 
Faculty Senate-made it im- 
possible to do anything but take the 
Commission's proposal or reject it 
essentially in toto. 

The indignation thus aroused 
was shared by Faculty Senators of 
several shades of opinion. This 
indignation was provoked by the 
delinquency of the Commission, 
not by the intransigence of any 
clique in the Faculty Senate. 

The original proposal had im- 
perfections which were called to 
the attention of the Commission by 
a group of faculty members with 

doubts, a group whioh tho CotT\-

The first thing I'll do after I 
punch in in the morning on my first

up neat Armenian words to sell to 
my customers, who by this time

Ark, I live in Noah's Ark, but I'll 
tell you about that on a clear day. 
I'll think up words like. .."Inch

tranquility, and phrases 

like..."Kishar pareee." (The first 
one means how are you and the 
second is Good Night.) I'll even 
offer discounts on words... like 25 
dollars flat for what Luicee Pareee

part I'll carry a complete line of 
Onitsuka Tiger track shoes and a 
little pamphlet that tells you how

I'll have another pamphlet for 
you to buy that tells you how to do 
your track show. ..Tell you what I'll

if they don't what you do is put your

It is deplorable that we were 
invited to a "Southeast Asia Art 
Exhibit" enticed by posters 
showing Bali bathers, only to 
encounter an ex-AID profiteer in 
action, spare time en- 
trepreneership. Cultural im- 
perialism is not a slogan; it is 
exemplified by this exhibit and its 
placement in the Campus Center. 
For long periods of time we have 
entered museums to view ancient 
Chinese art of past epocs, to view 
collections of "primitive art" from 
Africa, to even buy original pre- 
Columbian Mayan artifacts at 
Macy's. It seems as though the 
long horrible war in Southeast Asia 
would quicken our perceptions of 
our own actions either as in- 
dividuals or as members of this 
society in seeing how some in the 
U.S. not only hoard for alliances, 
resources and brains from other 
countries, but even for other 
cultures' "art", gluttonously. If the 
selling of the ceramic Vietnamese 
elephants for $10-$75 benefited 
those who made them perhaps this 
venture could be justified. Daniel 
Ellsburg is sending the ad- 
vancement of $150,000 he will 
receive from a publisher for his 
forthcoming book to the war in- 
jured children of Vietnam. The 
American Friends Service Com- 
mittee has long appealed for 
money from this country to finance 
their medical and health clinics 
operating in Southeast Asia. If the 
"dealer" of the "art exhibit" were 
to auction the items, not for per- 
sonal benefit, but to return the 
money to those who are struggling 
to survive without eyes, limbs, who 
have been advised by AID per- 
sonnel that it would be best to leave 
ancestral lands to "relocate" in 
cardboard camps made secure by 
barbwire and bombing on the 
periphery, perhaps.. ..we would

mission itself ask6d to meet the 
previous summer. Difficulties in 
the details of the proposed 
unicameral Senate were then 
raised, as well as the wisdom and 
feasibility of proceeding toward a 
complete recasting of University 
government on a model as yet 
unproved rather than in at- 
tempting better co-ordination 
between the units of the governing 
bodies we already had. 

The Commission did ifothing to 
meet these objections, nor did it 
seriously explore alternative 
methods of co-ordination. The fact 
that practically no change was 
made in the original proposal, 
taken with the failure of the 
Commission to make the 
preliminary report in the fall 
which was called for in its charge, 
would seem to indicate either a 
condemnable inactivity or com- 
placency on the part of its mem- 

The consequences was that a 
number of faculty senators, in- 
cluding several who had not 
previously been known to have 
doubts, were able to show great 
deficiencies and inconsistencies in 
the details of the proposal. The 
cumbersomeness of the 
procedures by which the Com- 
mission sought to secure autonomy 
to the undergraduates, the 
graduates, and the faculty seemed 
likely to increase rather than to 
diminish friction and certain to add 
ereaUy to the effort that h»a to fee 

put. iw»t.o «.*«• governing process. 

Again the question was raised as to 
the wisdom of setting up such a 
complicated procedure without at 
least exploring alternative 


That there was a conspiracy of a 
faculty clique against the Com- 
mission's proposal seems to be 
preferable to Glenn Elters then to 
believe, as the Chairman of the 
Commission reported to be the 
reason for dropping the proposal, 
that it simply wasn't liked much by 
anybody, undergraduates, 
graduates, or faculty. Those of us 
who had serious doubts on con- 
sidering the original proposal, 
could hardly be expected to lose 
them when nothing whatever was 
done to alleviate these doubts. It 
would make better sense to believe 
there may have been a conspiracy 
within the Commission to jam this 
proposal down our throats by 
bringing it up so late that 
discussion was impossible; but I 
suppose it is much more likely that 
its members neglected their duty 
than engaged in such 
Machiavillian maneuvers. 

At any rate it seems a more 
reasonable as well as a more 
democratic procedure to many of 
us to have the Commission's report 
reconsidered this fall when there is

Students Accused of 
Being Swindlers and Spies 

"Cat's paw of the plutocrats", 
was an epithet hurled at one of the 
Aggie students who recently made 
an agricultural survey of Franklin 
county. The students were 
suspected of all kinds of vile things 
by the backwoods people of our 
neighboring county. 

Howard L. Russell '18 had some 
very interesting experiences, and 
it was he, to whom the above 
mentioned epithet was attached. In 
one town he stopped for four days 
with the prinicpal of the high 
school, and it took him two of the 
four days to convince the man that 
he was not sent around by the 
Standard Oil Company to get the 
farmers to raise more crops so that 
the company could "skin" them in 
the fall. 

In another place one old man got 
it into his head that Russell was a 
secret service agent and he went 
all around warning the neighbors. 
Those who did not consider him an 
out and out swindler thought that 

he was the tax collector and en- 
deavored to hide. 

The houses, in which the people 
of many of the Franklin county 
towns dwelt, were in a most 
deplorable state. In one kitchen, 
which Russell encountered, there 
were three cats, two dogs and 
seven people. Two or three of the 
windows were broken and none of 
the people wore stockings or shoes. 
William McKee '18 also had 
some very interesting experiences. 
On his first night out he ran into a 
regular "Bingville" town meeting. 
This one happened to be a special 
preparedness meeting and the 
people were not satisfied until 
every citizen of the town had been 
appointed on some committee or 
other. Half the children in one 
grammar school are going 
barefoot now and the snow can still 
be seen on the hills.

Trinidad TripoU Steel Band 
To Perform Here Tonight 

The sensational Trinidad 
Tripoli Steel Band of over 22 
members from Trinidad will be 
making its way to UMass tonight, 
Tuesday, August 3. 

The Steel Band's repertoire of 
music ranges from the classical 
to rock and roll on oil drums! 
This fact has astounded 
audiences, not only for this 
reason, but because of the un- 
believable fidelity and artistic 
accomplishment with which they 
render each concert or dance 
number-whether it be modern, 
classical or their native calypso. 
The calypso numbers, are, of 
course, in a class by themselves, 
combined with exciting dancing 
and chanting as only the natives 
from Trinidad are capable of. 

Born from the desperate days 
following World War II when it 

was not possible to get either 
instruments or money to play 
their beloved calypso music, the 
natives of Trinidad discovered 
that^-bandonedoil drums could be 
used for musical tones. Thus 
began the original band of which 
this is the present day outgrowth, 
into an organization that has 
played such pockets of 
sophistication as Rockefeller 
Plaza, Central Park and Lincoln 
Center Mall in New York City, 
the Pan American Union in 
Washington, D.C., the Montreal 
Museum of Fine Arts and their 
triumphs at the World's Fair in 

The band has performed twice 
for Queen Elizabeth of England 
and has accompanied Dionne 
Warwick, Liberace, and Donald 
O'Connor on their concert tours. 

As Entertaijunent World put it, 
"The Trinidad Tripoli Steel Band 
is the most exciting attraction in 
the world today." 

The group will be playing 
selections from the rock musical 
"Hair" and will even play some 
classics, such as Khachaturian's 
"Sabre Dance." 

The Steel Band will be playing 
in an outdoor nightclub, on the 
3rd Level Terrace of the Campus 
Center (Student Union Ballroom 
if rain), at 8:00 p.m. They will 
also hold an informal coffee hour, 
and a lecture/demonstration at 
4:00 p.m. in the Colonial Lounge. 
Admission to both events is free, 
but UMass. summer students 
with summer I.D.'s will be seated 
before the general public. 

I Rip Van Winkle 
Opens Thursday 


UMass Summer Theatre will 
present Rip Van Winkle on August 
5,6,7,12,13,14, in Bartlett 
Auditorium at 8:00 p.m. with 2 
additional performances at 2:00 on 

it»e 7th and 14th. 

The original Rip Van Winkle 

legend which was unearthed by 
Dietrich Knickerbocker, an old 
Dutch colonialist who spent his 
time delving into the history of the 
early New York province, was first 
published as a short story by 
Washington Irving in 1819. In the 
middle of the nineteenth century 
the famous American actor Joseph 
Jefferson took the story of Rip Van 
Winkle and saw in it a marvelous 
vehicle for his abilities. What could 
be better than an American theme 
dramatised for an American actor 
for a newly developing American 
theatre. For the next four decades 
Rip Van Winkle became one of the 
most popular plays of the 
American theatre, and Jefferson 
spent the rest of his life touring and 
perfecting the character he had 
helped to create. 

People have loved this tale for a 
number of reasons. Knickerbocker 
saw in it a rich tale of his early 
people. Washington Irving saw in it 
a fascinating story to intrigue and 
captivate the reader. Jefferson, 
while appreciating the fact that it 
was a good story, was more in- 
terested in the workings of Rip's 
mind. He was fascinated with the 
problem of what would happen to a 
man's mind if he had slept for that 
length of time. Would he finally 
come to believe that he really was 
dead. As Jefferson said, "This was 
the strange and original attitude of 
the character that attracted me." 
Although the play was most 
popular in the 19th century and has 
been obscured by more recent 
developments in American drama, 
it is still a remarkably vital and 
engaging play. This production 
should appeal to young audiences 
as a colorful and exciting tale of 
mysterious demons, magical 
scenic effects, colorful folk 
costumes, and fascinating 
characters. To adult audiences the 
play works as a piece of early 
Americana, an exploration of myth 
that focused our need to escape to 
pastoral oblivion when confronted 
with the anxieties of civilization. 
The University of Massachusetts 
Summer Theatre folks are sparing 
nothing to stage Rip Van Winkle in 
as careful and exciting way as 
possible. Extensive rehearsals of 
the experienced cast have been 
underway since the beginning of 
July under the direction of Gary 
Stewart of the University of 
Massachusetts faculty. An 
elaborate movable setting has 
been designed by Jeff Fiala to 
accomodate the oft-changing 
scenes. Mary Ann Tolka has 
designed and is supervising con- 
struction of colorful period 
costumes, and Anita Page is doing 
choreography for the folk dance

7,800 Vacancies For Fall 

German Mime, Rolf Scharre 
To Appear Here August 1 1 

The art of pantomime will be presented by the distinguished German- 
born mime, Rolf Scharre on Augustll and 12 at 8: 00 p.m. in Herter Hall, 
Room 227 on the UMass, Amherst campus as part of the University of 
Massachusetts Summer Program. 

Born in Dresden, Mr. Scharre studied philosophy and German 
literature at the Universities of Freiburg and Goettingen from 1947 to 
1955. During this period he developed his theories on the modern pan- 
tomime and began his first solo and ensemble mime performances. 
During 1956-1960 he was a student in Paris of Etienne Decroux, the 
founder of modern pantomime, and wher» Scharre also worked with 
Marcel Marceau. 

Since 1960, Mr. Scharre has made guest appearances throughout 
Europe, North Africa, the Near and Middle East and the Orient. In 1969 
he made his American and Canadian debut. Mr. Scharre has also been 
active in television and deeply involved in leading European opera 
companies such as Hamburg, Cologne, Dusseldorf and the Bayreith 
Festival as well as the famed Vienna Burgtheatre. 

Critics throughout the world have been impressed by the unique art of 
Rolf Scharre. Nearly all of Mr. Scharre's pieces have the same starting 
point: the mime enters the world as a stranger. Furthermore, he is a 
novice, without a profession, without a mission, at home nowhere, and 
subject to no one. He is deeply impressed by the world. He looks, and is 
astonished, observes, studies things, and admires them. Then he begins 
to play with them. But the things prove to be stronger than he is. He who 
got them to "vibrate", now has to defend himself. They distress him and 
remove him from reality. He loses the ground under his feet. Reality is 
taken over by dreams, desires, and visions. 

Mr. Scharre will also hold an informal lecture-demonstration on 
Thursday, August 12 at 3:00 p.m. in Herter Hall, Room #227 for those 
purchasing tickets to the Wednesday and Thursday evening per- 
formances. The lecture/demonstration will give a comprehensive in- 
troduction into the nature and essence of mime, pantomime and language 
by means of word and example. 

Unreserved tickets are free of charge to University of Massachusetts 
Summer Students with I.D.'s. Others, $1.50. Tickets are available in the 
Fine Arts Council Ticket Office, 125 Herter Hall. Telephone 545-0202. 

UMass Professors Research 
Vegetable Nitrate Content 

The increased use of nitrate fertilizers in this century apparently has 
not materially increased the nitrate content of common food plants, two 
UMass scientists have reported. 

Donald N. Maynard and Allen V. Barker, associate professors of plant 
and soil sciences at the Amherst campus, base their conclusion on three 
studies of the nitrate concentration in fresh vegetables. One was made of 
vegetables sold on the Chicago market in 1907, the other in 1964 in the 
Washington area and the third was their own study of vegetables 
currently being sold in the Amherst area. 

The two presented their findings in a paper yesterday (Aug. 4) at the 
68th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Horticultural Science in 
Manhattan, Kan. 

The paper noted that nitrates are toxic to humans, but at much higher 
concentrations than those ever encountered in foods. However, nitrates 
are reduced to nitrites before or during the ingestion and absorption of 
foods. When nitrites are absorbed into the blood stream in quantity, 
ferrous haemoglobin is oxidized to ferric haemoglobon and the condition 
called methaemoglobinemia results. When this occurs, oxygen is not 
transported and tissues are subject to anoximia. As a group, infants are 
more susceptible than older children or adults. Since nitrite is the toxic 
substance, nitrate concentrations serve as a direct index of the potential 
for nitrite toxicity. 

Over 100 colleges and unversities in New England 
have reported that they still have vacancies for en- 
tering students. „ , ^ „ a 

These institutions informed the New England Board 
of Higher Education, in its 14th annual survey of 
openings for college freshmen, that some 7,800 
vacancies remain unfilled. 

Dr. Alan D. Ferguson, director of the Board, noted 
that these statistics are issued primarily to assist 
students, and should not be used to predict trends 
among college-bound students nor institutional 
growth. They simply reflect the fact that many op- 
portunities still exist in New England for students who 
wish to enter college this Fall. 

He pointed out that detailed copies of the Board's 
survey can be obtained at the Board's office at 20 
Walnut Street, Wellesley. 

Dr. Ferguson emphasized that these vacancies are 
filling rapidly, and that students who have already 
been denied admission should not reapply to that 

State by state breakdowns of these vacancies for 
college freshman are:

Letters To The Editor 

Appley Replies: 

)ear (ilenn: 

My attention was called to your article of Tuesday, July 20, 1971 in The 
>ummor Statesman in which you referred to my criticism of the final 
eport of the Joint Commission on Campus Governance. 

I very much regret your apparent need to resort to ad hominum 
irguments in referring to my position in this matter. Attacking Graduate 
)eans may be the preferred activity of the season by surely the issues I 
aised rather than the fact of my opposition should have been the subject 
)f your comments. 

The opening sentence of your article suggests the Commission's own 
ack of confidence in its Report which occurred "upon completion of the 
inal draft " and apparently not as a consequence of remarks by myself or 
anyone else. My understanding was that the hearings were held to 
receive criticisms which, hopefully, would feedback into an improved 
report. As the hearings developed, it became apparent that the Com- 
mission had "done its thing" and that no further amendations would be 
expected. Under the circumstances, I for one. felt that the Report should 
ot be approved since its implementation would impose an enormously 
omplex governance structure and substructure on an already difficult 
overnance situation. 

You completely misunderstood my position vis-a-vis the Graduate 
School and cooperation. In my previous tenure as a Graduate Dean 
elsewhere, I happily reported to and participated in a University Senate 
and would have been pleased to do so here as well. This does not mean 
hat I was willing to accept the overly complex and (in my view) un- 
workable proposal for a University Senate proposed here. 

The essence of my objection was not and is not to a University Senate 
)ut to the mechanics proposed by the Commission. I considered the 
:ystem proposed to be unwieldy and thus unworkable. If you took notes on 
my comments, you would not have reported them exactly the way you 
did. 1 do not believe nor did I state that the Graduate School must be in- 
- dependent of the general academic community. I do not believe nor did I 
state that I would not work for a University where a University Senate 
existed. If it is your belief that anyone who disagrees with your in- 
terpretation of a governance system ought to be forced to resign, you 
should state this more clearly. Your statement that "certain Commission 
members were heartened and even more determined to get the 
University Senate system instituted after listening to Dean Appley..." 
suggests that there is only one University Senate system and that this is 
the one proposed by the Commission. It was precisely this kind of "take it 
or leave it" attitude that was transmitted by the Commission that led to 
my opposition to its proposal. Some features were acceptable to me, 
others not. Without modification I had to vote to "leave it." Was I under 
an obligation to be silent if I disagreed with the Commission recom- 

No one likes to have his work ignored. I fully recognize the effort that 
you and the Commission members put into the process of delivering a 
report. 1 do regret that you ended up trying to "force the Report" without 
amendment. The suggestions that I made at the hearing were intended to 
lead to a modified and more broadly acceptable proposal. The fact that 
the hearings led to no modification in the draft before its submission to 
the Faculty Senate suggested that you were not prepared to represent 
views other than your own to the Faculty Senate and left me, for one, 
under the impression that unless I objected loudly, your time scale would 
lead to implementation by the end of the semester. Your personal attack 
on me in your article suggests that I had no right to present my views in 
the Faculty Senate. I take exception to this attempt at censorship and the 
unreasoned tone you take in your article as a consequence of my ex- 
pressing my honest convictions. Would I be excluded from speaking my 
mind if there were a joint Senate over which you were presiding officer? 
Let me briefly comment on some of the other statements in your in- 
teresting article. First, it seems unreasonable to say that it was the 
Faculty Senate that "administered the coup-de-grace to the Report," 
There are many ways to share responsibility (and control) of the 
University with students. My personal record demonstrates not only my 
interest in but my advocacy of this posture. The Commission proposal 
was not the only means of accomplishing such ends. Indeed, in my view 
and apparently those of a majority of the Faculty Senate, it was a poor 

Second, in your third from the last paragraph you claimed that the 
Commission should have earlier entered into wider discussions. I agree 
had this been done, the debacle might never had occurred. I take ex- 
ception, incidently, to the statement regarding the "use" of the Chan- 
cellor. It is most presumptuous of your Commission or any other body to 
"use" the Chancellor. I do not believe that the Chancellor could have been 
"used" or would have allowed himself to be "used" regardless of his 
position on the Report. Further to this, I did express my personal views 
on the Report to the Chancellor and had, as I expected, his approval for 
expressing my honest objection to it. It would be a sad state of affairs, 
indeed, if any of us were "used" to ram a position through. 

I could go on in detail, but won't. I am personally fed to the teeth with 
the flag of "reform, innovation and academic experimentation" being 
taken up by anyone who happens to be bored, restless or looking for 
something to do. It is patently absurd to refer to the "oligarchical rulers" 
as a generalized enemy without identifying who they are or what they 
stand for. You do, in fact, identify "the enemy" in a number of con- 
tradictory ways as suits your argument from section to section. And, in 
classic language of stereotypy, you speak of "liberal and young faculty." 
It should be obvious that not all the young faculty arc liberal and not all 
the iiljcral faculty are young. And so on. But this would apparently have 
been less good journalese.

World Power 

Ultimately, the question of who produces power for 
whom and at what cost is one of the most pressing 
questions facing the whole world. Energy is necessary 
to raise an economic system from the subsistence 
farming level. But there is a finite amount of energy 
available throughout the world. The technologically 
developed countries are those which are currently 
using the greatest amount of energy, and, as a direct 
result, producing both the "highest standards of 
living" and the greatest amounts of pollution. Our 
current priorities and systems function in such a way 
that we are constantly looking for new materials to 
put into the systems, and throwing wastes out at the 
other end. This unecological approach dominates the 
thinking of capitalists and communists; both kinds of 
societies pollute their environments. In both societies, 
there are powerful interests which often prevent us 
from even considering realistic alternatives to our 
self-destructive systems. All over the world we are 
blinded by the Gross National Product; we believe 
tbft growth is necessary and good. Instead, what we 
need to do is make less, and make what we do make 
last longer and be reusable. We need an efficiently 
circular system. 

One example of a possible energy source that could 
be ecologically sound, even using some of its own 
waste products as fuel, is the fusion reactor. Because 
there is no combustion, no air pollution is created; the 
fuel can be a common isotope of water. There is never 
enough fuel present at one time to cause a runaway 
accident. Most of the radioactive tritium created in 
the reactor could be recycled as fuel. As of now, the 
chief danger is the possible leaking of some tritium. 
From an ecological point of view, the fusion reactor 
would seem to be a very profitable area for research 
and development. 

But research and development cost money, and 
very little is being spent on fusion reactors. Instead, 
the emphasis is on further development of current 
systems of producing energy, with the addition of the 
fast breeder reactor. Nixon's "energy message" 
called for a demonstration plant of the liquid-metal- 
cooled fast breeder reactor (LMFBR) by 1980, at the 
cost of $77 million. Although there are proposals in- 
volving more conventional forms of power, the oil and 
coal industry terms the message "Nixon's nuclear 
message." The Nixon plan is to use coal, gas and oil 
for the short term energy needs, and concentrate on 
fission reactors, particularly the fast breeder, for the 
long run. Some have criticized this program for 
placing so much emphasis on a new, relatively un- 
tested, system which, should it fail, would leave the 
country with terrific power shortages. Others are 
worried about the breeders as a source of power. 
Breeders sound good ecologically at first because they 
can produce more fuel for themselves as they produce 
energy. The fast breeder gets its name from the 
ability to "breed" radioactive plutonium (its fuel) 
from relatively inferior isotopes of uranium exposed 
to the neutrons of the plutonium currently being used 
as fuel. It is expected that a reasonably efficient 
breeder reactor could double the plutonium inside its 
core in seven to ten years. This would be simply 
fantastic, except that plutonium is extremely 
radioactive, and thus threatens us all with radioactive 
pollution. Another problem with the LMFBR is that 
the coolant (liquid sodium, hence the name liquid- 
metal-cooled) is hard to work with since it is opaque 
and itself becomes highly radioactive while 
surrounding the plutonium. Some utility companies 
are reportedly working on designs for fast breeders 
cooled with helium gas, but the government plans 

concentrate on the LMFBR. No one has done a 
thorough environmental impact study on either kind. 
Despite optimistic assertions to the contrary, we 
cannot be certain that the fast breeders will provide us 
with good (that is, cheap and clean) power. 

In the meantime, tests of the emergency cooling 
system now widely used in operating fission reactors 
were failures-six times in a row. The water that was 
supposed to flood a reactor if the usual cooling 
procedure broke down did not flood the test model. If 
this were to happen to a real reactor, the radioactive 
core could rapidly become so hot that it would melt its 
way down through the concrete shell and into the 
earth, releasing vast amounts of radioactivity to the 
earth and atmosphere. The AEC has temporarily 
halted the issuing of new licences for nuclear power 
plants as a result of this test failure. Why was not this 
system thoroughly tested before the plants now using 
it were built? 

But whatever sources of power we turn to, there are 
those who will be prepared: the oil companies. The 
Federal Trade Commission and the House Sub- 
committee on Small Business Problems have sud- 
denly discovered that the oil companies have been 
making determined and successful efforts to buy out 
much of their competition. Oil companies now own 
20% of US coal deposits; four of the largest oil com- 
panies own 23% of our current coal production. Of the 
twenty-five largest petroleum producers, twelve own 
coal resources, eighteen own uranium (45% of our 
uranium reserves); the Kerr-McGee oil company is 
the largest single producer of uranium. Standard Oil 
of New Jersey, Gulf, Shell, Atlantic Richfield, and Sun 
Oil own some of all domestic forms of energy 
production: oil, natural gas, coal, shale, tar sands, 
and uranium. Not only does such concentrated control 
keep prices suitably fixed for the benefit of the oil 
companies, but it also stifles efforts to find new, 
cheaper and cleaner, systems. The oil companies are 
not particularly interested, for example, in financing 
research to discover how to convert coal into gas that 
could be sent through pipes. In fact, the current 
supposed shortage of fossil fuels, which has forced up 
the rates for fuel oil for heating houses, etc., is largely 
an artificial one created by companies which are 
holding out for higher rates yet or partially closed 
down (as the coal industry did because of nuclear 
plants). The "energy barons" are interested in con- 
tinuing what we have always done, what has gotten 
them rich. The National Petroleum Council expects 
energy needs might double by 1985; and it wants to 
make sure that it controls the available supplies of 

While the oil companies can play this kind of game 
for some time, they cannot continue indefinitely. US 
supplies of oil may be exhausted by 1980, at least by 
the end of the century, and despite the enthusiasm 
with which many companies are preparing to bid on 
oil off the coast of South Vietnam, the days of grabbing 
another nation's natural resources and running are 
coming to an end. The "underdeveloped nations" are 
insisting that they have as much right as we do to 
cars, color tv's, electric clothes washers, and 
pollution. The fact is, though, that there is just not 
enough energy, in the conventional forms of fossil 
fuels, to go around. We must all either cut back on our 
standard of living, so that other people can use some 
of the energy we had planned to use, or else find new, 
and cleaner, ways of producing energy. We have not 
been willing to face this fact.

We feel it is necessary to com- 
ment on your recent letter 
published in the summer 
statesman concerning the music 
room Art Exhibit. 

The intent of the exhibit was 
primarily to allow the university 
and surrounding communities to 
be aware of contemporary works 
by Asian artists. The artists have 
attempted to convey their 
thoughts, ideas, emotions, and 
being in a way best suited by them. 
Perhaps these expressions by the 
people of asia will enable us to 
obtain a better understanding of 
their culture and heritage— an 
understanding necessary if we 
hope to obtain world peace. 

If you felt Vietnam was being 
exploited, these works were 
irreplaceable, and rightly 

belonged to the Vietnamese people- 
-may we make a suggestion. Why 
don't you purchase (at cost) and 
return them to the artists and the 
people in the countryside 
responsible for their creation? You 
are right. Most of Ihem would be 
pleased with you. They would 
welcome you with cheers of 
laughter. A few though, would 

curse you for attempting to deprive 
them of a way to make a dignified 
living, so they may purchase food, 
education, and medical care for 
their families. Nguyen Thi Nhan 

You have criticised Macy's for 
distributing articles from 
Colombia. You should know 
developing countries, such as 
Colombia and Vietnam urgently 
need a source of foreign exchange 
through their exports to accelerate 
their development. 

What do you want us to purchase 
from these countries^ If we pur- 
chase raw materials, you cry 
"economic exploitation." If we 
purchase handicraft and art 
finished products, you cry 
"cultural imperialism." If we 
purchased automobiles 
manufactured in Vietnam, you 
probably would cry "pollution 
exploitation." Have you also tried 
and sentenced other cultural 
presentations, such as the Bolshoi 
Ballet, Trinidad Tripoli Steel 
Band, Foreign Films? Tell us. 
What do you want us to purchase 
from developing nations. We would 
like to know. Nguyen Thi Nhan 

It should be noted paintings are 
not for sale in the Campus Center 
during the exhibit. However those 
individuals requesting information 
about purchasing paintings after 
the exhibit were provided with 
such information as they desired. 
To answer your charge of 
profiteering-you are publicly 
invited to purchase all paintings 
and ceramics at cost, now that the 
exhibit is over. You can resell them 
at what you consider a "fair price" 
or dispose of them as you wish. 

In closing we wish to reiterate 
our position on behalf on Phi Lan, 
Nguyen Van Ba, Nguyen Thi Nhan, 
their families and nations, we will 
continue to exhibit their works in 
attempting to improve com- 
munication, understanding and 
economic development of our 
fellow nations on this planet. We 
feel sure our artist friends would 
agree. Mrs. Nguyen Thi Nhan 

P.S. Oh, Zoe, thank you for the 
publicity and we hope you get well

'Repulsion' Curious Mixture 


REPULSION, shown Thursday 
evening by the Art History Group 
in the Student Union Ballroom, is a 
curious mixture of high-brow art 
film and middle-brow horror film 
elements. Consequently, it can 
succeed with a wide range of 
audiences. Thirty-one year old 
director Roman Polanski had 
already scored in his native Poland 
with a series of ironic shorts (in- 
cluding TWO MEN AND A 
WARDROBE) and one highly- 
acclaimed feature film, A KNIFE 
his first English language film, 
was like the beginning of a new 
career for Polanski, because it 
marked his entry into the world of 
big-time commercial production. 
It was also the beginning for him 
of, what c. spears in retrospect to 
be, an extraordinary fascination 
and involvement with the 

The plot follows the flight from 
reality and progressive disin- 
tegration of the mind of a young 
French girl living in London. 
During the course of the film, the 
girl's psychotic fear of sex drives 
her to commit two ghastly murders 
and end in a state of complete with- 
drawal. As such we have a 
psychological case study, not as an 
investigation of the root causes of 
the girl's mental condition, but 
merely as a subjective rendering 
of the horror she feels. 




In the role of the disturbed girl, 
Catherine Deneuve is something of 
a casting coup. Her tendency to 
underplay* a role and her static 
beauty both contribute to a 
passivity which renders the active 
subjectivity of the camera both 
more necessary and less ob- 
jectionable. Furthermore, perhaps 
because Polanski lacked con- 
fidence with English, Miss 
Deneuve's acting is fortunately 
based on gesture rather than on 
delivery of spoken lines- 
accounting for why this is probably 
her best performance. 

Because Polanski has limited the 
film to a narrow scope, he fills the 
void with all sorts of cunning 
camera contrivances in an effort to 
make the horror more intensely 
felt. Excellent, too, are visual 
motifs like the decaying carcass of 

a rabbit, the garden of a convent 
adjacent to the scene of the crimes, 
and mysteriously sinister cracks in 
the wall plaster. But despite the 
intelligence and control exerted by 
the director, the film seems to lack 
a meaningful point. This account of 
the repulsion felt toward life by one 
girl has no higher level of meaning 
nor presents a personal statement 
from its creators. Yet from the 
point of view of the horror genre, 
the film succeeds brilliantly. It is 
even more imaginative, com- 
pulsive, and thrilling than works of 
the masters, Hitchcock and 
Clouzot. Could such artistry have 
gone into the making of purely 
•escapist entertainment? The 
appropriate answer was provided 
with the appearance of the ac- 
complished blockbuster

Editor's Note: The following is 
reprinted from the July issue of the 

Seven U.S. Presidents were 
marijuana users, according to Dr. 
Burke, president of the American 
Historical Reference Society and 
consultant for the Smithsonian 
Institute. Those he listed are: 
George Washington, Thomas 
Jefferson, James Madison, James 
Monroe, Andrew Jackson, Zachary 
Taylor, and Franklin Pierce. 

Pot was common among tobacco 
growers, for when it was mixed 
with tobacco, it gave a mild in- 
toxicating effect. The leaves and 
resins (hashish) were used to 
season food and as medicine. Prior 
to the Civil War, pot was a very 
successful drug when used to cure 
insomnia and impotence. It was 
used primarily to relieve tension. 
"Early letters from our founding 
fathers often refer to the pleasures 
of hemp smoking," said Dr. Burke. 
"There are even references to it in 
the Congressional Record. 
Marijuana never became a 
commercial industry because the 
plant was too easy to grow." 

George Washington, James 
Madison, and Thomas Jefferson all 
cultivated pot on their plantations. 
George is said to have preferred a 
good pipeful of "the leaves of 
hemp" to any alcoholic drink. 

George and Tom often wrote to 
each other about the virtues of 
smoking and exchanged parcels of 
the weed as gestures of friendship. 
James Madison once remarked 
that had it not been for hemp, he 
would not have had the insights he 
had in the work of creating a new 
and democratic nation. 

James Monroe, creator of the 
Monroe Doctrine, smoked both pot 
and hashish. Madison brought 
back the habit of smoking hashish 
from France and continued 
smoking til he was 73. 

Pierce, Taylor and Jackson, all 
military men, smoked pot with 
their troops. As popular as pot 
smoking is today in Vietnam, it was 
twice as popular among our 
soldiers in the Mexican War. 
Pierce wrote home to his family 
that it was about the only thing 
good about the war. 

Richard Milhous Nixon, on the 
other hand, really can't get into 
smoking. That's 'cause he's too 
busy shooting up.

The Summer Statesman 

The Big Switch 

This week there has been a drastic revision in format of 
The Summer Statesman. The main reason for the switch 
from a tabloid newspaper to a 8 1/2 x 11 magazine is that a 
Summer newspaper is an ineffectual means to com- 
municate with the 4,000 students on campus during the 
Summer Session. One reason it does not work is that there 
are at most six major news stories here during the 
Summer. Obviously this limits the amount of space which 
can be packed with interesting news stories. The paper is 
needed, however, to relate these stories and to describe 
the opportunities (Summer Program) which are available 
to students here. We hoped that by cutting down the 
amount of space in the paper we could give you better 
articles and turn out a more graphically pleasing 
publication. To some small extent we feel we may have 
succeeded in this issue and we expect to be far more 
successful in the second edition. 

We would of course appreciate any feedback whether 
positive or negative concerning this change or anything 
else that may have something to do with the existence of a 
Summer newspaper. 

On The Inside: 

This week's Summer Statesman is jammed 
packed with enough interesting material to keep 
you glued to your dining commons seat at least 
until you get halfway through dessert. To start 
things off, we have our usual witty letters section 
on page four. Next to that is a review of one of 
Amherst's oldest eating places by one of Amherst's 
oldest gourmets. Coming up after that, on pages six 
and seven is a review of UT's latest production. Rip 
Van Winkle. Eric Benjamin is featured on page ten 
with a review of his latest misadventures at a 
movie theater. Also along with Eric is a little blurb 
about Rolf Scharre, who is also featured in an ad on 
page five. The News Bureau swings into action on 
page eleven and Diane D'India gives us nine inches 
of her best stuff. And on page twelve, our own D. J. 
Trageser, Jr. gives us his analysis of the upcoming 
National Football League season and how he thinks 
the New England Patriots will fare as they seek to 
better a 2-12 record. Page thirteen will perhaps 
turn out to be somebody's idea of a joke and the rest 
on the Patriot's forecast rounds out the issue. 

But we skipped something : pages eight and nine. 
For years now we've been wanting to unmask the 
UMie for other UMies to behold and emulate. So we 
did. We have found the "Essential UMie" and 
studied his diet of records, books, papers and 
whatnot. Our findings, and a few suggestions for 
improving your own cultural state of mind, can be 
found in the centerfold.

Letters to the Editor 

To the Editor: 

The "Southeast Asia Art Exhibit;; 
shown last week in the Music Room of the 
Campus Center was in sharp contrast to 
the mobile exhibit assembled by Don Luce 
(the journalist who showed 2 U.S. 
Congressmen the Tiger Cage cells in 
Vietnam and who has revealed the 200,000 
political prisoner situation in South Viet 
Nam. His exhibit of photographs, objects, 
letters, U.S. AID memos (one advertised 
the opening of a new Saigon Bar) 
newspapers, music, drawings and pain- 
tings etc. convey not only an inkling of 
what Viet Nam was and is but also an 
understanding of what our government 
and military has done. (This exhibit will be 
in Bennington, Vt. this next weekend 
accompanied by Don Luce, who speaks 
Vietnamese.) " understanding 
necessary if we hope to obtain world 
peace" might be not of other countries and 
peoples as much as of our own country, 
I.E. its militaristic orientation, its profit 
driven economic system, its political 
process that overrides pubhc sentiment 
against the continuance of the War, that 
votes against disengagement acts and 
votes for presidents that promise peace 
and yet they perpentrate war; its duality 
of values, for example draft resistors who 
refuse to kill are jailed and those who 
admittedly commit atrocities and mass 
murder remain free; and its religious zeal 
to keep secure allies in the "free world". 
My criticism of the "distribution" of pre- 
Columbian artifacts by Macy's stems from 
the fact that many countries have 
outlawed the commercial extraction of 
articles that exemplify the culture and 
history of that nation. These articles 
should not be in the hands of foreigners 
wealthy enough to buy on a blackmarket 
or through middlemen like Macy's, which 
stimulates illegal pillage-an endeavor 
that rarely provides long run employment, 
but should be available for public view 
within the country from which it 
originated, ideally, to intensify and 
reinforce the sense of national pride and 
dignity. Pre-Columbian articles designate 
objects from the civilizations that 
preceded the invasion of Europeans on this 
hemisphere; Colombia does have a pre- 
Columbian heritage as do the native 
Americans of North. Central and South 

To imply that the underprivileged of the 
Vietnamese society will benefit from the 
act of purchasing and retailing items like 
the Vietnamese ceramic elephants is to 

deceive. The end results of such misguided 
liberalism are generally ephemeral profits 
to a few commercial middlemen in Viet 
Nam and the U.S. Then the buyer feels he 
has been absolved of responsibility to the 
crimes the U.S. government is committing 
in Viet Nam. Trade and commerce have 
always heralded their penetration into a 
country by the promise to "civilize" and 
better the standard of living in foreign 
lands. These arguments were made during 
the expansionary periods of England, 
Spain, Portugal, France and the 
Netherlands and now they are being 
repeated again to defend U.S. economic 
penetration of countries. 

Aid programs have been useful levers to 
buy off dissent and to create dependent 
groups who will act as junior partners to 
control national revolutionary 

movements. In an open letter to President 
Johnson by Guatemalan students in 1968, 
they, put it well: "Dating from the 
beginning of the 20th century, the wealthy 
classes of our republic entered into a 
murky marriage with the North American 
monopolies and have converted 
Guatemala and its inhabitants into a 
miserable factory, into a sleezy business of 
a minority and into a very similar place to 
hell for the majority of Guatemalans." 

Thieu, Chiank Kaishek, Samoza in 
Nicaragua, Arana in Guatemala, Franco, 
the colonels in Greece and Brazil all have 
trade, military and international 
relationships that favor goals of the U.S. 
government and U.S. commercial in- 
terests and at the same time do little to 
foster the independent development of 
those countries. 

I should know that "developing coun- 
tries. ..need a source of foreign exchange 
through exports to accelerate" mis and 
underdevelopment, for the foreign ex- 
change is required to buy what U.S. 
companies want to sell for profit. 

Aid to the above regimes have amounted 
in the billions. Since the 1954 CIA spon- 
sored coup in Guatemala, for example, 
U.S. aid has been very visible. Military aid 
was pumped into Guatemala to guarantee 
"stability" so that United Fruit Co. could 
operate profitably while paying 80C a day 
to workers, to napalm villages that shared 
chickens and maize with the guerilleos, to 
supply the secret police with blue and 
white Ford Broncos, to supply the police 
with Ford pickups with rear cages to haul 
"dissidents and criminals" to prisons 
already full of students, professors, and 
opposition party members. In other words 

the U.S. aid flows in and the coffee, 
bananas, frozen beef flow out. And the 
Indians refuse to fish in the rivers because 
bodies float by. 

Another opinion of U.S. aid comes from 
Viet Nam, Huynh Tan Mam, Chairman of 
the Viet Nam National Student Union, in a 
letter addressed to Senator Fulbright, May 
8, 1971. "We are being confused by the 
sophistication and the subtleties of U.S. aid 
which we no longer believe in its con- 
structive effects. 

"As students, but also as citizens of Viet 
Nam, we are responsible for the present 
and future survival of Viet Nam. Our cry 
for peace has been repeatedly voiced 
through the years despite repression, 
violence and imprisonment. In this small 
space we cannot elaborate on the wounds, 
physical and mental-that we have been 
suffering. We do not want to see our land, 
our people destroyed by the U.S. Army, 
tear gas, defoliation, bombings. 

"We deeply appreciate the concern ana 
efforts that the American people have 
toward us in helping us achieve peace. 
Knowing of this great concern of yours as 
representatives of the American people, 
may we once again ask you to make all 
efforts so that U.S. government stop all 
military aid to the present regime and 
withdraw all U.S. troops from South Viet 
Nam and as soon as possible. 

"Peace then can be achieved and the 
reunification of Viet Nam can be settled 
among ourselves in the spirit of 
brotherhood, especially from one fresh 
and sincere reconciliative youth on both 

The only way we can help achieve that 
peace that we, the Vietnamese and others 
want, is by insuring that the Johnson and 
Nixon types will not assume national office 
in 1972. New political coalitions are 
assembling among the poor, minorities, 
youth, women and antiwar people. 
Perhaps due to a new "understanding" of 
what this country is and how it operates, a 
political mobilization would ensue where a 
new Congress and a new President would 
respond rather than react to the injustice, 
racism, profiteering, militarism, poverty, 
sexism, imperialism. ..domestic and in- 
ternational. All of us who have in the past 
petitioned for peace must register to vote 
and petition the people to vote out those 
who continue the war. If we fail this will be 
our "war crime".

New York Times 
New York City 
Dear Sir: 

Bill Kovach's story on voter registration 
in Amherst (Monday, August 2, p. 13) must 
have needed a clever dramatic ending; 
Kovach supplied it at my expense and at 
the expense of the People's Community 
Union. He quotes me as saying to town 
officials who requested that we move our 
food cooperative out of a residential neigh- 
borhood, "When we get in power, maybe 
we'll run you out." 

1) I was careful to indicate to Mr. 
Kovach that there was no conflict between 
the People's Community Union and the 
town of Amherst. Indeed, the Town 
Manager has been flexible and helpful. 

2) The wording of the quote is repulsive 
and indicates an archaic sense of social 

3) The Voter Registration article needed 
to see a conflict between the town and the 
students. But in fact the People's Com- 
munity Union does not represent the 
students against the town: we represent 
the interests of ordinary people who can't 
afford decent housing, decent food, or 
decent medical care; who are out of work 
or afraid they will be put out of work; who 
work at the university but can't afford to 
live in Amherst; who are disgusted by the 
mutilation of our environment and the 
oppression of other countries by 
irresponsible economic interests; who 
reject the racism, sexism and "age-ism" 
which feed the system with a flexible 
supply of cheap labor; who want a life 
based on sharing and working for com- 
munity needs rather than on competition. 

In the long run we want to help create a 
libertarian socialist America in which we 
can live more human lives, communities 
in which a sentence like "When we get in 
power, maybe we'll run you out," won't be 
written by anybody.

Although reviews of local restaurants 
have never been a regular feature of the 
SUMMER STATESMAN, they may be of 
some help to those of you who are tiring of 
Dining Commons fare or fending for 
yourself at the overpriced apartment you 
rented to escape the even more 
unreasonable fees of dormitory living. 
Beside the clusters of pizza and ham- 
burger places in this area there are also 
several good (and often expensive) 
restaurants at which you might possibly be 
able to have an outstanding meal. 

The oldest of these is the "The Lord 
Jeff" which is situated near that large 
waspy prep school about a mile and a half 
down the road. When I first came to the 
Asparagus valley about five years ago, 
this was the classiest and the most ex- 
pensive place in town. Though it was still 
the most expensive place in town six 
months ago, the quality of the food and the 
service had dropped considerably. The 
menu was tasteless, unimaginative and 
static. There was quite often a shortage of 
waitresses and one occasion I was there, 
silverware was not in sight. Apparently 
this was because management was in a 
stage of transition. It also may have had 
something to do with the fact that some of 

the more experienced help of "The Jeff" 
came over tc Lhe "Top of the Campus" in 
order to make more money. 

However recently I heard that things 
had taken a turn for the better at "The 
Lord Jeff". Amherst College bought the 
place and they hired a new chef (who I am 
told formerly was employed by the Queen 
Mary) and they have begun to refurbish 
the interior of restaurant and inn. I went 
there for dinner about a week ago and it 
has improved noticeably. The service was 
pleasant and superior to anywher^^else in 
the area, although this may have been 
because it was not very crowded. There 
was nothing particularly intriguing on the 
bill of fare, but it did have many 
traditional New England dishes, including 
vegetables, which are difficult to obtain in 
the steak, seafood and Italian restaurants 
in the area. All in all, it is probably worth 
going to if you can get your parents to pay 
for it when they come up and offer to take 
you to dinner. One added feature of the 
"Lord Jeff" is the bar. It is downstairs and 
there are tables and chairs outside in a 
courtyard where you can sit and guzzle 
Heinekins (Light or dark) o. excellent 
mixed drinks in the blazing afternoon sun.

They're Never 
Too Young . . 

"Rip Van Winkle," which played here 
last weekend, was an amazing revelation 
of how little men's attitudes toward 
women have changed in the last fifty to 
seventy-five years. Granted, women have 
a vote now, but society teaches them from 
birth that they are weaker and less 
capable of independence than that pin- 
nacle of nature, man! If a woman is 
concerned with educating her children 
(both female and male) as to the unhappy 
results this false societal conditioning can 
lead to, she should definitely be sure her 
children see "Rip Van Winkle this 

Rip is characterized as a very lovable, 
but henpecked drunkard. To offset his 
irresponsibility in constant failure to help 
feed and clothe his family, however, he is 
given the societally approved qualities of 
generosity, humor, friendliness and love of 
children. Thus Rip's wife is shown in a 
negative light when she scolds him for his 

Gretchen is shown, nevertheless, to be a 
very capable woman with an un- 
derstanding of the procedure that has lost 
her husband's property through the years. 
It is she who keeps food on the table and 
somehow manages to survive without 
being able to depend on Rip for help. This, 
of course, is a violation of the Total 
Responsibility Theory, which decrees that 
the man should provide 100% protection of 
the woman, who is too dependent to be able 
to help in this respect. 

There are two factors in the play which 
partially redeem Rip from his failure in 
the Total Responsibility area. First, in a 
male chauvinist society, taking care of 
household matters is women's work; and 
second, while Gretchen is in reality able to 
take care of herself and family, she has 
been so conditioned by society that she 


By Cheryl Cardran 

sincerely believes in her ultimate 
dependence on the male. Thus, later in the 
play, she marries Derrick Von Beekman 
believing that without his help she would 
be unable to provide for her child, though 
she had already been shown capable of this 
when she knev/ Rip was alive! In this 
situation, the false conditioning of society 
has created a miserable life for both 
Gretchen and her daughter, both of whom 
submit themselves to brow-beating and 
physical beatings in the belief that this is a 
necessary condition for survival. 

The propagation of this delusion is 
shown to be carried out when the daughter, 
Meenie, compliments her mother by 
calling her, "...weakness and patience 
itself." Thus, the positive connotation of 
qualities considered to be negative in men 
reveals the prevalent double standard 
which is still in existence today. Meenie 
does show some spirit in standing up to 
Derrick Von Beekman, but even this dies 
when he tells her that her lover, on whom 
she depended to save her, is dead. 

All the main characters in the play 
suffer as a result of the false conditioning 
of society. Rip loses twenty of the best 
years of his life because his male pride is 
offended when his wife scolds him and 
throws him out; society places a higher 
value on this "pride" than on the strong 
emotion which would make him want to 
stay when his child pleads and his wife 
subsequently changes her mind. Gretchen 
is condemned to twenty years of being 
browbeaten and wife-servant to a miser by 
her conditioned belief in the dependence of 
women on men, and Meenie suffers 
because she has been taught to believe as 
her mother does. 

Only in the end of the play when Rip 
wakes and returns to the village does the 
worst male chauvinist of all. Derrick Von 

Beekman, get his come-uppance. When 
Rip has learned to see Von Beekman's 
meanness and ultimate male chauvinism, 
he rejects him and once again forms what 
promises to be a more meaningful 
relationship with his wife. 

The play is not the ideal statement for 
Women's Liberation as it leaves Gretchen 
and Meenie still feeling themselves to be 
dependent on men, but it is a very healthy 
beginning as it makes two positive points. 
First, the revelation of the harm caused by 
society's false conditioning of both men 
and women is one which is seen little 
enough even today; this is the first, and 
perhaps most important step in ridding the 
world of its ignorance in this area. Second, 
Rip's becoming aware of the value of his 
wife and daughter, and his discovery of the 
unhappiness they have come to in 
believing themselves dependent, is an 
awakening of great value, made even 
more so by the fact that his new 
relationship with his wife establishes a 
more equal footing for both. 

One leaves the theatre with the hope that 
more men will become aware of the value 
of women as equal human beings, and that 
women too will see the dangers of simply 
accepting society's teachings without 
question. For there are many women who 
are unhappy with the present state of 
affairs but do not challenge it for fear of 
losing their "feminity." Let "Rip Van 
Winkle" show them and their daughters 
what unhappiness our society's definition 
of "feminity" can bring. And let them 
understand that as "masculine" is a man's 
being what he is, "feminine" is a woman's 
being what she is.

!r"Cultur£'s answer to t 





Hear No Evil, See No Evil 


The only way to gain an objective view of 
the state of man is to step outside of the 
human race and examine it. The Planet of 
the Apes series of movies reverses the 
roles of humans and apes, and gives each 
the others characteristics. On the planet of 
the apes, humans eat bananas and swing 
from vines, while apes are intellectuals 
who speak perfect English. The humans 
are hunted and placed in zoos, while the 
less fortunate of their species are used in 
medical research. 

"Escape from Planet of the Apes," the 
third in the series, opens with the arrival of 
three envoys from the Simean culture who 
have landed in a renovated spaceship. 
Later we are told that Doctor Milo was the 
only member of the expedition that at all 
understood the craft. How the rocket was 
prepared for flight, or fueled, by one ape is 
something that Apollo engineers would 
like to see. The general in command of the 
welcoming crew decides that since they 
are monkeys, they should be taken to the 
zoo where they can be with their relatives. 

At the advice of their leader. Dr. Milo 
(Minderbender?), the three apes decide to 
remain silent until they can glean a few 
friends from the ranks of the humans. But 
Milo's ingenious plan is foiled by Xara who 
feels obligated to verbalize her distaste for 
bananas. After Dr. Milo is strangled by 
one of his cousins, the authorities realize 
that the zoo is no place to keep these 
ambassadors from the banana kingdom, 
and after a hearing by a presidential 
commission, they are transferred to a posh 



hotel suite. 

The arrival of the remaining two apes, 
lawfully wedded Cornelius and Xara, at 
the hotel begins the gradual ebb of their 
Simean identity. They are stripped of their 
native clothes and socialized into business 
suit and dress. Their socialization is so 
complete that the normally pacifistic apes 
are forced to kill, just like humans. 

No matter how benign their motives 
seem, rest assured that there will always 
be someone who suspects. Thus, we are 
introduced to the neo-Nazi who im- 
mediately wants to send them to the 
showers. The apes are smuggled off to 
mysterious Camp SI where the Sodium 
Pentathol scene takes place. 

Adolph of the Army finally ascertains 
that the apes will eventually dominate the 
humans on Earth unless (the plot 
thickens) the two on hand are denied 
progeny. Adolph convinces the president 
to do away with any possible children just 
as we learn that Xara is pregnant. The 
chase is on. Adolph and his merry men 
chase Xara, Cornelius and their new born 
son to their dry docked battleship-hideout. 
After the big shootout scene it appears that 
mankind has been saved from being 
dominated by the ape; his inevitable 
successor to the throne. 

In the opening paragraph I inferred that 
all this monkey business was supposed to 
teach us something about ourselves. In the 
horrifying (?) ending we learn what the 
message is: Man can not monkey with the

Tough Year Ahead For Pats 

ByD. J.Trageser.Jr. 

I would really like to "be optimistic 
concerning the Patriots chances djiring 
the upcoming season, but it is very dif- 
ficult despite the changes in management, 
and attitude which the club has undergone. 
All matters of personnel and coaching 
aside for a moment, the Patriots in the 
first half of the season face perhaps the 
most demanding schedule in the NFL. 
They face all six playoff contenders, 
Oakland, Detroit, Baltimore, Miami, 
Dallas and San Francisco in their first 
seven games this season. The one respite 
in their schedule, if it could be called that, 
is their encounter with the New York Jets 
in Schaefer Stadium on October 10th. The 
Jets however have not lost any of their last 
ten games with the Pats and even without 
Joe Namath they will be a formidable 
opponent. This type of schedule is bound to 
be hard on a young team like the Patriots 
and Coach Mazur will find it a very dif- 
ficult task to maintain his club's present 
enthusiasm throughout the long season. 

The Patriots may also have many of the 
same personnel problems which ham- 
pered their success last year. The of- 
fensive line in the pre-season game Sunday 
against the Minnesota Vikings seems to be 
basically unchanged qualitatively in 
comparison with last year's. Taliaferro's 
protection was almost nil at times 
although Jon Morris and the rest of the 
offensive line opened up some excellent 
holes for Jim Nance and Carl Garret

against the "Purple Gang" defenders. 
Perhaps they cannot be castigated too 
badly for not standing up effectively 
against Footballs' greatest defensive line. 
Especially since Taliaferro did have 
several good opportunities to complete 
some passes and he wasn't able to find the 
range. Despite some added depth behind 
their first unit they still seem unlikely to 
provide sufficient pass blocking to make 
the Patriots a viable offensive threat. The 
Patriots still have two other glaring of- 
fensive weaknesses beside the over-all 
quality of their line. One of these, the one 
at quarterback, has haunted the Patriots 
since Babe Parilli's last good year in 1966. 
Sherman, Trull and Huarte are only a few 
of the quarterback candidates that the 
Pats had high hopes for, who were rarely 
effective in any games. This problem 
seemed as if it were finally solved with the 
acquisition of Joe Kapp from the Vikings. 
Although Kapp was not particularly im- 
pressive last year, he was handicapped by 
the fact that he was not familiar with the 
offensive system (he came to the Pats in 
the middle of the season). He also missed 
preseason conditioning and received 
horrible blocking most of the season. 
However this year the first two of those 
handicaps could be overcome and the third 
would have certainly been the object of 
some improvement. Finally the Patriot 
troubles at quarterback seemed to be over. 
Such was not to be the case. Joe Kapp who 
is currently receiving the highest salary in 
the history of football ($200,000), because 
he refused to sign a standard player 
contract, cannot play for the Patriots or 
any other NFL team this year until he does 
so. This was at the suggestion of his lawyer 
John Elliot Cook, who expects he can get a 
substantial settlement with the NFL to 
prevent Kapp's challenging the section of 
the player contract that gives the com- 
missioner the power to be both judge and 
jury in the league. The Patriot's again 
have a problem at quarterback. However 
there is a good possibility that it may be 
solved by Heismann Trophy winner Jim 
Plunkett, the first college player to go in

the draft last winter. Traditionally it takes 
at least 3 to 5 years for most highly 
regarded college quarterbacks to acquire 
the tools and the judgement of a 
professional quarterback. However there 
are those that feel that Plunkett is such an 
outstanding prospect that this period will 
be considerably shorter. I certainly hope 
so because the Patriots have no other

effective alternate. Mi^e Taliaferro has 
shown that he probably cannot make the 
Pats winners. Partially this may be due to 
an ineffectual Offensive line and mediocre 
receivers (other than Sellers). The un- 
merciful razzing of Pat fans which was 
directed at him (usually unjustified) has 
undoubtedly not helped at all either. He 
has a good arm but he seems to lack the 
quick-release or scrambling capabilities 
which poor football teams need during 
their transition to good teams. Perhaps the 
best thing that could have happened to him 
was to have been traded to a more well 
established ball club while the Pats still 
had Kapp. 

The Pats also have a problem at tight 
end. This might be the most prevalent 
problem in pro football and probably the 
only way they will ever solve it is through 
the draft. 

The Patriots have always been stronger 
defensively than they were offensively. 
This year seems to be no exception. The 
defensive line seems to be better than 
average if they can avoid injury they 
should be able to pressure rival quar- 
terbacks better than they did last year. 
The addition of Defensive tackle Julius 
Adams from Texas Southern should give 
them some need depth. 

The Patriot linebackers played some 
great games last year and potentially here 
the Pats could be very strong. Ed Philpott 
and Steve Kiner both looked very good last 
Sunday against Minnesota and they 
together with Jim Cheyunski and Tim 
Kelley are young enough to be significant 
part of future efforts at a championship. 

It is difficult to gauge the quality of the 
defensive secondary. They were very 
inconsistent last year but this was perhaps 

understandable in light of the many in- 
juries and psychological problems which 
beset the whole team. If the defensive line 
can pressure the opposing quarterbacks 
and if the offense offer a more sustained 
attack then they probably can be counted 
on to do the job well. They were pretty 
effective against Minnesota when a good 
rush was put on (Clarence Scott snared 
two interceptions) last Sunday and 
hopefully this will continue. 

Perhaps the Pats will have a winning 
season this year and maybe even make a 
run at the division title. Probably this is 
too much to expect. Hopefully they will be 
able to begin to make some significant 
developments toward becoming a 
championship team in the near future. 




The Summer Statesman 

Volume 1, Issue 15 

August 19, 1971 

The Summer Statesman 

There is very little that can be said about this summer at 
UMass. It was rather dull here, the only really in- 
teresting thing being Attorney General Robert Quinn's 
ruling which allows students to vote in the communities 
where they live while attending school. It is not difficult 
to understand the significance of this decision in terms 
of Amherst. The aftermath of the decision is most 
fascination. Various people including **rown Meeting 
members have complained about the fact (?) that 
students do not pay taxes, and therefore should not vote 
in this town. They fail to realize that in a sense, students 
do pay taxes since taxes are paid pn University land in 
Amherst, and taxes are paid indirectly by students who 
pay rent in Amherst. People in town government who 
are not intelligent enough to realize that this argument 
is falacious probably deserve to be voted out of office. In 
a New York Times article Mrs. Pat Fischer, Republican 
Town chairman stated that, "I just don't think they 
should vote here - they're only part-time residents, 
ninety-five percent on them go home every week-end." 
One cannot help but be astonished at how kno\yledgable 
she is about the living habits of the majority of the 
town's residents. If that statement is representative of 
awareness of student life then perhaps a change is in 
order in the government of this town. We suggest that 
student residents of Amherst at least consider 
registering here, and become involved in the govern- 
ment where they live.

Letters to the Editor 


Summer Statesman 


During the summerhiatus, the Attorney 
General of the Commonwealth rendered 
his opinion that students should be per- 
mitted to register and vote (as well as run 
for office) in the town where they attend 
school, if they wish to. There is no im- 
pediment to a student making the decision, 
therefore, to vote in Amherst despite his 
address in a dormitory or the fact of 
substantial parental monetary support. 
Indeed, the substance of the Attorney 
General's opinion is that a student shall be 
treated exactly as any other person for 
purposes of voting without regard to where 
he lives (so long at it is in the town) or 
where he makes or acquires his money or 
even what his parents may prefer. The 
Attorney General grounds his view in the 
words of the twenty-sixth amendment that 
no law shall prohibit a person of eighteen 
years from voting. 

It is very easy to register in Amherst and 
all that is required is for the potential voter 
to appear in person at the Town Hall or at 
any special registration booth as 
established from time to time, and identify 
himself or herself and his or her present 
address. The registrant must also 
demonstrate that he or she has lived in 
Amherst for the preceding six months to 
the next election day by, for instance, 
showing a telephone listing, a lease, rent 
payment check or other proof that shows 
that he or she has lived in Amherst for the 
statutory period. Subsequent to Attorney 
General Quinn's ruling, his office has 
stated that summer vacations by them- 
selves do not constitite a lapse of con- 
tinuous residency for students any more 
than they do for any other members of the 
community. The six months requirement 
therefore applies through the summer to 
persons resident in Amherst both before 
and after vacation. Furthermore, it ap- 
plies to persons that have lived in Amherst 
continuously not necessarily at the same 
address within the town. 

The foregoing substantially covers the 
way in which any voter exercises his right 
to vote, and the ruling that Attorney 
General Quinn has made. However, any 
legal right has, in theory, a com- 
plimentary responsibility. For the right to 
vote it is easy to see that the responsibility 
is to exercise the franchise thoughtfully in 
the way you deem wisest for those ends 
that you support. In a democracy there 
are two principles that dominate in the 
area of exercise of the vote; self-interest 
and compromise. A vote should, ideally, be 
cast in your own self-interest as you 
conceive it. Thereby government becomes 
the sincere collective will gathered in the 
most expedient manner. Self-interest does 
not necessarily mean self-aggrandizement 
or enrichment, however. It probably can 
be safely stated as that expression of your 
interest which you feel best improves the 
condition of your environment at the most 
sensible (not necessarily lowest) cost to 
the community and which embraces the 
needs of those around you most com- 
petently. Even if you do not agree that this 
view of voting is the most efficient, the 
Attorney General's ruling necessarily 
carries with it another less obvious right 
for which there is another set of respon- 
sibilities. That is the right to claim 
Amherst as your residence. By claiming 
Amherst as your voting residence, you 
should also claim it on the census rolls. 
Your vote is exercised over the ex- 
penditure of funds in the town treasury to 
pay for programs you support and indeed 
you must pay in to that treasury by living 
in Amherst. You do this in the form of sales 
taxes and rents paid to either the state, 
town or through your landlord and you do 
it indirectly by purchasing goods and 
services in the community from which 
others derive their income. But, as a 
resident it is incumbent upon you to pay 
the annual excise tax on certain items, 
most obvious being automobiles, by 
registering them at your claimed address. 
Indeed, failure to notify the registry of a 
change in your residence is a punishable 
offenst and should not be neglected when 

you have registered to vote in Amherst. 

If you are from out-of-state and you 
register to vote here file a Massachusetts 
Resident Income Tax Return if you earn 
income in the state and not an out-of-state 
return. In the long run it won't make much 
difference in dollars to you as state taxes 
split among states are generally deduc- 
tible in other states, but it does make a 
difference to the town and state you adopt 
by registering in accordance with the 
Attorney General's ruling. 

There are many ways in which your 
decision to vote in Amherst will require 
changes in past practices but few of them 
mean much change to you economically 
but they do make a difference to the town 
and the revenues it has to operate its 
services and programs. So the message is 
that if you determine to register to vote in 
Amherst, or any other of the surrounding 
communities, please be sure you register 
all the way and join the town you choose 
completely as one of its full-time citizens. 
Join the political and public-oriented 
groups and committees that interest you. 
Become involved in the problems of the 
whole town, not merely your slice of it. Be 
watchful that the officials, whoever they 
are, conduct the town's business in a 
manner you approve of. Run for those 
offices for which you feel you can supply 
the time and interest sufficient to do the 
job and remember that it is a job for the 
whole town you are running for. If the town 
has problems don't be a fair-weather 
friend, get into solving the problem. At- 
tend the hearings, make your feelings 
known. If you have special information, 
tell it to the town officials responsible for 
using it. Mostly, participate completely, 
not merely by marking your ballot. 

You can't lawfully be made to do all of 
these things as a precondition to voting. 
Many older voters certainly don't do them; 
You will agree, I hope, that its a lousy 
excuse. I also hope that you do see that the 
Attorney General's ruling extends to you 
responsibilities quite beyond the fun- 
damental right to vote.

Palsy Victim 
Fights Daily Battie 

Steps, doors, curbs and other small 
barriers that most people cross without a 
second thought can be major obstacles to a 
handicapped person. 

Marie Desmond is a cerebral palsy 
victim who fights a daily battle with such 
obstacles as a student at UMass. Now she 
has published a campus accessibility 
survey to make the battle a little easier for 
others with mobility handicaps. 

Miss Desmond, a graduate student in the 
English department's Master of Fine Arts 
in writing program, gathered the facts for 
the survey over the past academic year 
and put together a 30-page booklet. She 
calls it "Handicapped Person's Campus 
Accessibility." A thousand copies have 
been printed and are now available. 

It lists, for example, where the ramps 
are that enable a wheel chair or electric 
cart to get over curbs. It tells what 
buildings are accessible to wheelchairs, 
lists those with elevators, and tells 
whether the elevators need keys or are 
difficult to get into. 

Miss Desmond also gives directions for 
wheelchair entry to the 18 auditoriums on 
campus and lists the adapted lavatories- 
those that have hand rails and whose doors 
permit wheelchair access. She includes a 
campus map that locates parking areas, 
ramps and other aids for the handicapped. 

Along with what has been done at UMass 
for the handicapped. Miss Desmond lists 
what she thinks ought to be done. "Most, if 
not all, of the impediments on this campus 
can be modified, at a reasonable cost, to 
allow physically handicapped persons 
iree access to the entire area," she says. 

She lists eight buildings and a number of 
other locations that need ramp approaches 
and 12 primary public buildings that need 
lavatory adaptation. She argues also for 
adapting auditoriums for wheelchair use, 
removing seats if necessary. Miss 
Desmond also suggests counterweighting 
the doors of some two dozen primary 
buildings not only for the benefit of those in 
wheelchairs but for the safety of those 
using crutches. 

Buzzing around in her bright orange 
electric cart, her dog Lady trotting 
alongside. Miss Desmond is a familiar 
figure on the campus. She is a graduate of 
Classical High School in Springfield who 
earned B.A. and M.A. degrees at UMass 
before beginning her present MFA 
program. She is a graduate librarian for 
the English department. She did the ac- 
cessibility survey on her own time, and 
figures she put in about 500 hours of work 
on it. 

"The emphasis of this project is on the 
practical aspects of mobility-opening up 
the campus and all its academic and 
cultural riches to those with mobility 
handicaps," she explained. "This includes 
not only young people but also returning 
veterans and people in middle life 
returning to further their education." 


To Stay, To Go? 

What can we say about pizza? 
Especially Pioneer Valley pizza. That it's 
good in some places. And bad in others. 
That you get a good deal in some places. 
That you get screwed in others. 

What can you say about the pizza in 
Pioneer Valley. It may not be great but it's 
got an international flair. The Bell's are 
Greek, Armenians may have run Pizza 
Rami or so they say, and of course Bruni's 
speaks for itself. 

Pioneer Valley Pizza ia a world ready to 
be explored by the brave and hearty. So 
when the long nights seem to be filled with 
nothing but books and more books, give 
yourself a break and take in a pizza. Here 
are some favorites: 

THE TOWER-If you really liked high 
school and long for those good old days of 
warm beer in the back seat of a '57 Chevy, 
you'll love the Tower. The pizzas aren't 
bad and the selection is good, but the 
grease on the townies just doesn't make it. 
Hower the juke box is pretty good and if 
you're in a hurry, and no car, it'll do. 
AQUA VITA-This is a good place if you 
have a little money and want a fairly 
decent pizza. The service can be a little 
slow, but you can always have a few beers 
and listen to Eddy Arnold while you're 
waiting. And besides the placemats have 
all kinds of information about the Pioneer 

Valley you've been dying to know. 
HUNGRY— U~What can you say about 
this place? The pizzas aren't terrific but 
they don't make you sick. The clientel isn't 
so hot, but what the hell, if you want to look 
at people you can go outside. The juke box 
is pretty good but the Top 40 hopper music 
has a habit of sneaking in when you least 
need it. 

PIZZA RAMA~A new place it has pretty 
good pizzas. It's kind of a suburban place 
on the edge of the sticks. 
BRUNI'S-The service here is friendly and 
the pizzas are very good, but the prices are 
way too high. It's a good place though if 
you have the money and besides, maybe 
someone will play "Good Vibrations" on 
the juke box. 

HADLEY PIZZA & SUB-This is hard. 
Sometimes it's good and sometimes its 
really bad. If you're lucky it could be a 
good cheap meal. 

BELL'S~"To go? To stay?" Ding-dong. 
You know you're going to here , so what the 
hell. The pizzas are good but the floor show 
is better. You don't know why you go here 
but it's a habit. Ding-dong. 

Well there you have it, the '71 Statesman 
Pizza Poll. So happy eating. And just 
remember, "Everything you eat turns to 
gas." See you in the head.

Keeping Big Brother Honest 

The Nixon Administration, in its efforts 
to appear concerned about our en- 
vironment, has created several agencies 
and advisory councils within the executive 
branch to deal with environmental 
problems. Some of these are: the Citizen's 
Advisory Committee on Environmental 
Quality, the National Industrial Pollution 
Control Council, the Council on En- 
vironmental Quality, and the En- 
vironmental Protection Agency. But 
agencies do not guarantee that the en- 
vironment is receiving proper con- 
sideration. We need to know what these 
bodies are doing, and we need to decide 
whether they should be doing that. Take 
for example the National Industrial 
Pollution Control Council. 

Judging from its name, we might think 
the NIPCC is a council interested in 
discovering and controlling, if not 
eliminating, industrial pollution. Actually 
it is a council representing industry. 
Specifically the NIPCC consists of men 
(usually chief executives of the com- 
panies) representing two companies in 
each of the thirty groupings of main in- 
dustries. In addition, there are 150 
businessmen on thirty sub-councils 
dealing with each of the kinds of industry. 
They are supposed to advise the Secretary 
of Commerce, Maurice Stans, and 
President Nixon about "independent in- 
dustries" point of view' concerning the 
environment. From the sheer bulk of the 
reports NIPCC and its sub-councils have 
written, it is clear that they aro advising. 
The question then becomes what kind of 
advice are they giving? 

One indication can be found in two 
volumes which NIPCC has published. The 
first, (ommitments -Industry Cleanup 
Actions in Progress, contains descriptions 
sent in by various industries of their 
pollution-abatement efforts. The 
descriptions vary greatly in how in- 
formative they are. The second book. 
Casebook of Pollution Cleanup Actions, 
reprints articles from newspapers, trade 
publications and company newsletters 
bragging about how clean the company is. 
There are few facts, no real questioning of 

industry's role or attitudes. In other 
words, public relations. 

Another indication of the NIPCC 
philosophy and practice is the recom- 
mendation of the Detergents Sub-council 
last October in favor of using NTA as a 
phosphate substitute in detergents. In May 
of that same year, the Chief of the En- 
vironmental Toxicology Carcinogenic 
Children's Cancer Research Center had 
testified to a Senate Subcommittee that 
NTA is unsafe. Later, in December 1970, 
the Surgeon General and the En- 
vironmental Protection Agency both 
recommended that NTA not be used. But it 
was not until March 1971 that the 
Detergent Subcouncil reported that its 
earlier recommendation was obsolete. 
Why were the industry experts to badly 
informed of the dangers of NTA? 

All of this would not be so bad, though, if 
it were not for the facts that the NIPCC is 
obviously carefully listened to by the 
Commerce Department and the White 
House, and that most of the meetings are 
secret. Or private, the word preferred by 
Commerce Department officials testifying 
before the Senate Government Operations 
Committee. When Bert S. Cross, Chairman 
of NIPCC, kept insisting that public 
representation or press coverage of the 
meetings would interfere with the NIPCC- 
s work, Senator Metcalf, Chairman of the 
Senate Committee, suggested an anti-trust 
lawyer might have to be sent. None has 
been , however, and the meetings continue 
to be secret. 

The problem goes far beyond just the 
NIPCC. The Department of Defense is 
hardly the only agency within the 
government which tries to keep a large 
proportion of its activities secret from the 
people it is supposedly serving. In fact, 
•some of Nader's Raiders, after a two-year 
study of the Department of Agriculture 
have accused that Department of being 
.second to Defense in the mania for 
security classifications. Ultimately, we 
are told, the experts know best, and, by 
their very role as experts, represent the 
public mterest better than the public can 
itself. While it is true that most of the 

really important data dealing with the 
environment and pollution is highly 
technical therefore difficult for most of us 
to understand, it is not true that govern- 
ment and industry "experts" represent 
the best interests of anyone other than 
government and industry. And really only 
the short-term interests of them. The 
problem is not only to force councils to 
have open meetings, but also to find ways 
to make available to concerned citizens 
the actual facts, possibilities and questions 
that the experts are considering and, even 
more important, should be considering but 
are not. Who, for example, is going to keep 
an eye on the Environmental Protection 
Agency to make sure that it establishes 
and then enforces the strictest possible 
standards on emissions? We know by now 
that we cannot simply sit back and trust 
Big Brother to do his job correctly, even 
though so far EPA is doing pretty well. 

One place we can turn for help in 
keeping the government and industry 
honest is to the three new organizations 
which are attempting to gather scientific 
and engineering experts to study and. if 
necessary, oppose the policies of the 
pollution-complex. Nader's Clearinghouse 
for Professional Responsibility checks out 
reports of unethical or wasteful practices. 
The Center for Science in the Public In- 
terest is attempting to foster a social 
conscience among scientists in general, so 
that they will work for things that need to 
be done rather than destructive projects. 
Drs. Gofman and Tamplin, long-time foes 
of their boss, the Atomic Energy Com- 
mission, in the debate over radiation 
standards, have proposed an Adversary 
System of Scientific Inquiry. They would 
like to see groups of scientists who are 
responsible for investigating all the 
negative aspects of all new applications of 
science and technology. 

Finally, of course, there are the con- 
servation and ecology organizations that 
devote full time to trying to preserve our 
environment. They need your support. The 
CKQ office has information on them. If you 
are interested, call me at 549-0013.

Starting Salaries Drop In 70-71 

What were once branded as runaway 
starting, salaries for college graduates 
came to a near standstill in 1970-71, 
presumably the result of the current 
supply /demand ratio. 

During the mid-1960's beginning salaries 
for male college seniors and graduate 
students rose steadily, usually at the rate 
of 5 percent to 7 percent a year. In some 
shortage categories, increases oc- 
casionally were even greater. This past 
year it was a different story, according to 
Robert J. Morrissey, career planning and 
placement director at UMass, one of the 
specially selected institutions par- 
ticipating in the College Placement 
Council's Salary Survey. Data for the 
year-end report revealed that none of the 
disciplines covered realized increases 
greater than 2 percent over last year; 
most stayed at about the same level, and 
some decreased. 

Women graduates fared somwhat 
better, the Council found in a separate 
study. Beginning salaries offered this year 
to women students went up as much as 9 
percent in a few categories and increased 
over 3 percent in a number of others. 

The twin studies on salary offers 
resulting from campus recruiting are 
conducted each year by the Council, the 
non-profit international organization 
which provides various services for 
colleges and employers to assist students 
in their career planning and employment. 
Data for the man's study cover actual 
offers made by business and industrial 
firms as reported by 140 representative 
colleges and universities from coast to 
coast. Information for the women's study 
is furnished by 128 institutions. The major 
difference in the two studies is that the 
men's survey is based on academic 
programs whereas the women's study is 
reported by types of positions. Ad- 
ditionally, the women's study covers 
government employment while the men's 
study does not. 

While college recruiting activity 
dropped significantly in the last two years, 
beginning salary rates had continued to 

advance during 1969-70 at a pace only 
slightly slower than in the previous 
decade. This past year, however, the 
impact of fewer jobs being available 
became apparent. The cooling trend ex- 
tended to dollar averages as well as to 
volume in the men's study and certain 
areas of the women's study. 

At the bachelor's level, the final 
averages for jnale candidates in non- 
technical curricula, other than accounting, 
were slightly under those at the close of 
last year, with general business at $716 
compared to $721 for 1969-70. Accounting, 
which had been attracting sizable in- 
creases in recent years, went up only 1 
percent to $846 in 1970-71. The dollar 
averages for engineering curricula ranged 
from 1 percent to 2 percent higher than last 
year. Chemical engineering continued to 
attract the highest bachelor's dollar 
average, $920 a month, while the dollar 
average for engineering curricula 
generally was $879. 

In science areas dollar value of offers 
dropped along with volume. At the end of 
the season, the averages were: chemistry 
$795, mathematics $787, and physics $826. 

At the master's level, master of business 
administration candidates with a technical 
undergraduates degree closed the year 
with the top dollar average, $1,111, one 
dollar under last year's final figure. 
MBA's with a non-technical background 
ended at exactly the same figure as last 
year, $1,044. MBA candidates were the 
only graduating students receiving offers 
in numbers comparable to last year. Most 
master's engineering disciplines ran 1 
percent to just under 2 percent above last 
year's final dollar averages, with the 
exception of industrial which dropped 1 
percent. Average dollar values ranged 
between $978 for civil engineering to $1,054 
for chemical engineering. 

Data at the doctoral level were too 
sparse to draw meaningful conclusions, 
the Council stated. 

In the Council's Salary Survey for 
women, which is limited to the bachelor's 
degree level, 2 of the 15 types of positions 

studied experienced increases of 9 percent 
this past year. Medical workers finished 
with an average of $681 a month, a gain of 
16 percent over a two-year period. Mer- 
chandising ended with a $607 average, 
representing a 15 percent gain in two 

Engineering remained the highest paid 
category for women, going up to 3 percent 
to $885, making the rate comparable to 
that of male engineers. In the last two 
years women engineers have experienced 
an 11 percent increase in average starting 
salary while their male counterparts have 
received a 7 percent increase. 



Two UMass students have been awarded 
scholarships for study in Germany during 
the coming year. 

Harold D. Nilsson of Bay Shore, N.Y., a 
graduate student in geology, won a DAAD 
or German Academic Exchange Service 
scholarship for a year of study at the 
Research Institute for Geology and 
Biology of the Oceans in Wilhelmshaven. 

William Maker of Haverhill, has 
received a Fulbright Scholarship for 
advanced study in philosophy at the 
University of Freiburg. He is a 1971 magna 
cum laude graduate of UMass and a 
member of Phi Beta Kappa. 

During his junior year he was in the 
UMass program at Freiburg and during 
his senior year he did honors work on 
Nietzsche under Professor Leonard 
Ehrlich. He plans to continue his study of 
philosophy at Emory University on his 
return from Germany.

Summer Wrapup of the Big News 


The following is a brief news wrap-up of the Summer's events 
here in heart land of the Asparagus Valley. After Com- 
mencement the Board of Trustees approved increases in room 
rent, the cost of meals, and the Campus Center fee, to no one's 
surprise. Beginning September 1971, students will have a choice 
of 10 meals a week (any two meals each weekday) for $271.50 a 
semester, or 15 meals a week for $306.50 a semester. This is a 
16% increase over the previous semester. The University meal 
plan is mandatory for all students living in campus residence 
halls-except seniors, those over 21 and those given exemptions 
for extraordinary reasons. Southwest residents will now be 
permitted the same exemptions as those students in other parts 
of campus. 

Room rents were also increased by $50 for all students. Also 
the annual student ree for the Campus Center was increased 
from $48 to $60 for all undergraduates and graduate students. 
The Student Activities Tax and the Senior Class tax were 


Professor David C. Bischoff was named Dean of the School of 
Physical Education during the month of Jfune. He was formerly 
associate dean and professor in the School of Physical 
Education and he had been serving as associate provost since 
October of 1970. He will assume the post on January 1, 1972 upon 
the retirement of the present School of Physical Education 
Dean, Warren P. McGuirk. 


The Students International Meditation Society (SIMS) arrived 
here at UMass and practiced up on their transdendental 
meditation here for six weeks. It is very rare that such per- 
sonages as the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi visit the UMass campus 
and there are some who would probably consider that fortunate. 
The conferees and the Maharishi's staff however did prove to be 
rather interesting diversion for a short period of time. 


William E. Dye, Director of Planning and Training for the 
East St. Louis Police Department in Illinois was appointed 

Director of Security at UMass. In his new position Mr. Dye will 
be responsible for 28 police officers, 33 fire and security guards, 
and six watchmen. His primary task will be to review current 
security procedures and manpower levels to determine any 
changes that must be made to provide maximum security for 



A five year land evaluation appeal from Amherst has been 
settled out-of-court raising the valuation of the 780 acres of land 
in the town occupied by the University of Massachusetts from 
$792,000 to 3.35 million. 

The Supreme Judicial Court upheld local Assessors and 
remanded the case to the Appellate Tax board. That board found 
for the town and determined the fair cash value of all state 
owned land in Amherst used for UMass as of January 1, 1967 to 
be $3.35 million. 

Town manager Allen Torrey said the agreement will result in 
$147,000 additional state revenue this year, plus payments for 
1967 through 1970 of $616,000. 

Former President of Hampshire College, Franklin Patterson 
was appointed to the first University-wide professorship of 
UMass. As Frank L. Boyden Professor of the University, Dr. 
Patterson will explore the pressing issues concerning the 
substance and organization of higher education, especially in 
the area of cooperation among private and public institutions. 

In announcing Patterson's appointment President Wood said 
"Frank Patterson's service at Hampshire College and in the 
Five College program (Amherst, Smith, Mt. Holyoke, Hamp- 
shire and UMass), uniquely qualifies him for the new 
professorship, which will have among its charges the ex- 
ploration of ways and means for improving the collaboration 
among public and private institution of higher education. With 
the rapid growth of the University of Massachusetts, the 
professorship will also focus on the function of the University, 
and the manner in which it can respond more effectively to the 
needs of the state and its communities."

Astronomer Throwing New LightOnE-mc2 

Every day that the sun shines, Dr. H. 
Mark Goldenberg goes to the roof of 
Hasbrouck, takes the housing off a slender 
telescope there and trains the telescope on 
the sun. 

The associate professor of physics is 
preparing the telescope for a series of 
observations that may throw new light on 
a scientific controversy over Einstein's 
theory of relativity. 

In the last 15 years, the controversy has 
centered around an alternative theory first 
put forth by Carl H. Brans and Robert 
Dicke. Einstein's general theory of 
relativity is the one that ties the force of 
gravity to the shape of the universe. It also 
predicts such phenomena as a tiny drift in 
the orbit of the planet Mercury as it 
revolves around the sun. 

The Brans-Dicke theory seems to cover 
for many physicists the objections they 
have to Einstein's with one exception: it 
fails to predict the drifting of Mercury's 
orbit as accurately as does Einstein's. 
Dicke contends that Einstein's figure for 
the Mercury orbit drift is correct only if 

the sun is a sphere. Dicke's own theory 
assumes the sun is flattened slightly at the 

He and Dr. Goldenberg made a series of 
measurements of the sun in 1966, when 
both were at Princeton University, and 
found it to be slightly oblate; about 50 
miles smaller north and south than it is 
east to west. Now, using improved and 
computerized instrumentation. Dr. 
Goldenberg is preparing for a new series 
of solar measurements with the support of 
the National Science Foundation and the 
Air Force Cambridge Research 

With the help of Nicholas Karlak, a 
graduate student, the UMass physicist 
designed and directed the building of the 
telescope itself and the roomful of elec- 
tronic and computer components that 
adjoins it in an air-conditioned attic room. 
Analog and digital computers are used in 
combination in both the tracking and 
analysis phases of the telescope's 

A tracking mirror at the top of the 

telescope picks up the sun's image; 
measurement occurs at the lower end', 
where a photosensitive device relays light 
signals to a computer for analysis. 

Making measurements over several 
years, at a number of sites, he hopes to 
answer those physicists who say that the 
1966 findings might have been affected by 
a mistake in the instruments, atmosphere 
conditions at the time or by events in the 
11-year cycle of .solar sunspots. 

The present cycle of measurements will 
start approximately five years after the 
Princeton measurements, and at another 
point in the simspot cycle. Because of a 
number of distortion factors, he will 
gather data only during the three summer 
months, when the sun is at its highest. 

"I cannot say, nor did we ever say, that 
Einstein was wrong. What we can say is 
that we have cast some doubt and we have 
raised questions regarding the possible 
mcorrectness of Einstein's theory," Dr 
Goldenberg explained.
